    The allen screw is to keep the stem (red circle in the figure) attached to the caster tube. TiLite says not to adjust it. Don't know why. I never had a need to and have always left it alone.

    Finally got the bearings and tried removing fork assembly but no such luck! I'm a surfer so every time I transfer back into wheelchair, it receives a fair amount of salt water deposited on it. It's hell on upholstery, bearings, pretty much everything!! Do I need to use a BIGGER hammer? The original bearings are fairly locked up and I assume this is my problem????
