Trouble removing axel from hub
Posted 18 October 2007 - 09:27 PM
My last resort would be tying it between a tree and my car but I think that's probably a really bad bad idea... The only other option I've come up with is taking it to a machine shop and have them press it out.

Doh! Should have thought of that, I've been there almost everyday on the weekends for the past few months (I think they are starting to hate loaning tools to me since I'll return it thinking I'm done then have to go back to rent it again the next week).
This one work?
i don't see why not. its much better than the one i used from AZ.
when you reassemble, put anti sieze on the splines. and have you considered using the axle that's on the hub.
i went to swap a hub from my parts car to my daily driver only to realize i coundn't find the socket to remove the axle nut. so i swapped the set. used the parts car's hub and axle for my good car. lots less work now, more work later.

I'd rather keep the axel I have on the car since I know it's ok, rather than use one that is of unknown condition and have the joints fail. Plus I can return it to the yard and get the $30 credit;)
