Default Re: Pulling rear hub and axle shaft assembly on 50 woodie

I can usually figure this stuff out quickly. my restoration is stalled until i pull these shafts. Beat the crap out of them again after spraying more penetrating oil. nothing. I'm getting pissed.

I've had good luck hitting the axle with a 3lb hammer on the center, most of the time it will jump out. I've had to use a chain on two studs and a winch to put pressure on the axle and the strike the side of the axle with the hammer, the vibration seems to be what works.

Yes, probably rust has expanded and holding the bearing tight.

Another place where oxy/acetylene can be your friend.
