@Chilblane Your hub is not likely to have any problems unless it is neglected/abused, or you over-tighten the chain and/or swing arm pinch bolts.

If you inserted a wedge (with fully loosened pinch bolts) into the swing arm and expanded the pinch point just a tiny bit you should be able to get the hub to move. May need an extension on the tool kit spanner, and maybe smack that extension with a mallet.

But it will move. If it was seized solid you would also have massive corrosion in many other areas.

I used to be I just dream about it.
