Alright, so I very gently tapped them into place, put the wheel on the axle, tightened up the axle nut, and now with them pressed most of the way in there's 1/2" gap between the wheel and the nut which gives it room to travel that distance along the axle. I'm guessing this is not the intention?

Yeah I remembered to do that. Now I'm trying to remove that wheel and the damn nut got cross-threaded on the way OUT and just spins in place -- the plastic insert inside the nut is sticking out slightly. Never seen that before. Figures, though. :mad:

Stop!!!! remove the wheel take out spacers and put them on axle first. Then put bearings back in wheel and re-install on trucks.

Were there no other spacers? The alloy ones go between the wheel and trucks. I don't know about Primos but my superstars came with larger black spacers that go between the bearings.

Would love to. Axle nut spins in place. As do I, at the moment.

Never even got the chance to get out on it and I already destroyed it. Fantastic.

No, per my picture on the previous page, there were the two colored ones and the smaller metal one. I put the metal one inside the wheel, ostensibly in between the other two larger ones.

The bigger issue at the moment is how the heck do i get the nut off the axle now?

bad...if it spins w/out coming off the only way i know is to cut/grind it off, im ok w/ that for my own stuff not yours
right now got to hope the axle threads are ok and the nuts threads got chewed up

SS nut has lost its threads more than likely. And that is preferable to the carbon steel axle being shot. But it is replaceable. And I'm pretty sure Ted wants your boarding experience to be a good one.

My guess is it's shot. At this point I'm just trying to salvage the wheels. I'm no stranger to tools, but this was bizarre. I stopped when the nut ran out of threads, and there's NO WAY I over-tightened it for it to cross threads on the way out.

I'm pissed right now, as there were no instructions with it, none on Trampa's website, I even asked them for it and got no response. This thing was NOT cheap, either, as you all know. Now I am likely going to have to get new trucks. Not cool.

Way ahead of you on that wrench idea -- it spins and moves laterally a little, but it's not coming off. The nut is the kind with a nylon insert in it. Somehow that got twisted out slightly while I was initially attempting to remove it with the socket wrench.

Keep calm, I'm sure Ted will make this right. They don't come with instructions as it's not usually a persons first board. Usually one steps up to a TRAMPA after they have been boarding a while.

The axles come out of channel trucks. There is a set screw not far from where it goes into the truck body. If you loosen it ,you may be able to slide it out. Not sure if they are press fit or not so it might take some force to pull it out.That will allow you to get the wheel off.

Now I see what I did wrong with the spacer -- per the link above, click on the trucks tab, it shows the spacer on the inside edge of the wheel, not INSIDE the wheel.

Still can't get the nut off, though, or its axle.
