I am jut putting my orthopaedic shoes on
so I can stand corrected :)

there was indeed a steel ring left in the hub
all be it the seal came out with a metal ring on outside ?
I think they must be double layer I will investigate


thank you all

the ring that was left there was no visible line to see at all either in or outside
when I put the die grinder in to rough it up a bit it blued up so gave a clue as to it being a thin layer
ground a little more and broke through so got a blade and lifted edge
then grabbed it with grips and pulled it all out

saved a bit of work trueing it all up to machine it anyway

it had to be something simple as the seal is what fits them all and the hub was a proper hub

was thrown by there being a metal outer on damaged seal that was removed and that there was absolutely no sign of a join where the remaining bit of steel sat

again thank you
all
