I also put some sealant in the ends of the tubes before fitting them to make them more water tight.

I have done 800 mile since the mod with no side effects and it took me 15 mins to do. just remember to put plenty of grease on the drill and tap if you do the job with hubs in situ to catch cuttings.

Been thinking of adding additional step to your procedure, since you drilled out a hole in the center and screwed-in a bolt. What if that bolt is welded to the center cog which then allows a "crude" method of Locking and Unlocking the bubs by either tightening the bolt (lock) and loosening it (unlock) pulling out the cog vice-versa. [interested on exploring this before i empty my pocket on getting Samurai manual hubs]

PS.
This is my first post here but learning a lot from the topics here since I've acquired my Jimny a year ago..
