in the process of pulling my hub/bearing assembly off, to get to the drive shaft, so I can replace u joint in my front axle.
the thing is stuck, won't come off. I have removed the axle nut, and the three bolts that theoretically hold on the hub/bearing assembly. They all came off 1,2,3.
I have checked my haynes and chiltons, and they both say "slide/remove off hub/assembly", as if this is a no brainer step. I have been going at it for a couple hours with PB, rubber mallet, hammer, larger hammer, crowbar, sledge and cats paw to try to separate it. I have been able to move it maybe 2-4 mm away from the dust shield, and the metal looks ok inside. Filled with more PB. Now waiting. What can I do to get this friggen thing off? am I missing a step?
I have glanced over at my air compressor...it wants to be used with my air chisel to help "solve" this problem...but often I find that causes more harm - but feels really really good.
So, what do I do? anyone had similar experience and found success?
