Stuck front wheel hub

Hi guys, i am trying to remove my front wheel hub to install a C bracket for speedo sensor of my Trailtech vapor. I am wondering if using torch won't damage the bearings inside. Any ideas how to get it of the axle?

....following because I will likely be here soon....

Though I may shake my fist at them again tomorrow, tonight I will bow my head and offer these vulcanized tires as tribute. I will cut the night with the sound of wide open throttle...and no matter what....If I am destined for Valhalla....I will enter as a man who did not lift. - Speed Demons prayer to the Gods of Chaos.

Why are you removing the hub for that? Can't you get it from just tire removal? I think that was all I did with mine.

I need to unscrew the 2 screws holding the disc brake rotor cover. The C bracket for speed sensor needs to be mounted on those 2 screws. I can't do it without removing the hub with the rotor.

I won't touch it until next weekend, it is pretty cold in Canada and my garage is not heated.
Appreciate any help

If they are sealed bearings, the plastic will melt and the grease may boil. Maybe take a heat gun on low or a hair dryer on high to heat them. With the nut on, put the wheel/tire back on and ride around till it comes loose. Do you have a slide hammer? Or make one with a medium/heavy chain. Bolt it to the hub, and snap it like a whip. Still stuck, try the other side.

I do have a blind bearing puller with a slide hammer and couple jaw pullers that i tried. I will try electric heat gun as you mentioned.
If that fails i will need to purchase special wheel hub puller. Is it common that those front hubs sit so tight on the axle?

Thats what i did. It sounds silly but it worked! Spray the splines with penetrating oil like pb blaster or liquid wrench, loosen the nut and put the cotter pin back in so the wheel wont actually come off and make you a youtube star, then ride in the yard till she comes loose

Finally got it off the axle. Tried riding with loosened axle nut but it didn't work for me. Used 8 inch ratchet extension. Punched the hub several times and it finally came off.
Anyways thanks for your advice guys.
