There are two variations of the front hub/disc. Older models had a single
piece, which required removing the entire hub. I thought by 1990 only the
two piece style was in use.
I have the two piece type, but I don't recall it is hard to remove the disc.
Just to be sure, look carefully at the inside seam and make sure there
really is a separation between the disc and hub.
