Seems like an ongoing issue.
Has anyone tried taking the hub to a machine shop and have them bore out the taper, press in a new piece of similar cast and machine a new taper and key way?
A good press fit of 0.002" to 0.004" (guess) should never let go. Can look that up (or calculate) in the Machinery's Handbook for the press fit depending on bore, material and torque.
Although solid axles may be cheaper!
