Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I don't recall if i had problems with this, but the outer most pin-spanner threaded "lock nut" bit (shown under the tabbed washer and cone) isn't very thick, but if I remember, the holes COULD line up with the pin spanner holes in the cone. If the outer "lock nut" isn't loosened independently of the cone, you may have a lot of trouble loosening the whole bit. Please post pics of everything when you get it apart. It does look a little different than the one I posted in an earlier comment.
