  • Its stuck!!!
  • Hub has seized to axle and heat and pressure wasn't doing it. Tired using propane torch and old ax heads to heat up and wedge between hub and seal retainer.NOT HAPPENING.
    Puller is to far away to rent and buying is cheaper with travel.

  • It takes a ton of heat and a huge puller when they are stuck fast. Worst one I ever removed took a big rosebud torch til the hub was starting to glow red and the big puller. Vowed never to waste that much effort and torch gas again. Took the next stuck one to the machine shop and had it pressed off, 120 ton press and when it let go the rafters shook and dirt fell. It took about ten minutes and they charged $20. some other machinists were not happy so I doubt if they will do another!

  • And you tried driving on it also, correct? Shifting reverse to forward, dumping the clutch. . . Sudden shock syndrome. . .
