Rebuilding Aisin Manual Hubs

When I first got my 4Runner, I had to lock/unlock the hubs with pliers because it was too difficult to turn by hand.  I figured a hub rebuild was in order.  There are several excellent write ups on the internet for Toyota Aisin hubs.  Here are some links:

After following procedures from the above links, my hub dial now turns freely with ease.  When I disassembled my hubs, they were bone dry and there was lots of surface rust.  I cleaned everything up and applied a light coat of grease.  Here is what they looked like


 
 

Nice rust on the inside which was making the dial hard to turn

 
 

 
 

More rusty surfaces

 
 

 
 

All covered in rust
