I'm going to be replacing my rear rotor. Got the cotter pin and castle nut off. Question is, should the hub just slide off? If so, I'm going to need to get some mapp gas or something to heat it up. It's pretty frozen up on there.
Ok, tried the wd-40, lots of heat, and a puller. Nothing worked to get the hub off. Is there any other tricks to get this damn thing off? I guess I can try to heat it up till it's red hot, but I'm sort of worried about axle integrity. I'm thinking about getting my cut off wheel out and cut it out. If I go that route, I'm thinking about getting the g-force extended hubs. So, thoughts, opinions??
My one side was one there real good, I soaked it down with Liquid Wrench for a day, and then I just went around the horn with a rubber mallet, knocking it real lightly until it worked it's way loose. Might not be the best way, but it didn't ruin any splines or anything and it came off. I put the G-Force Extended Hubs on there and I really like them.
i had the same problem with my hub, it was coroded on there, i just used a torch on high heat and heated all the way around for a good couple minutes and then just smacked it with a mallet all the way around and it just barely budged, was a pain but it did come off in the end....lotttttts of heat some patience and the right amount of smashng should get it off
Well I just got it off. Bad thing is, I need a new axle now. I had to use a slide hammer, heat, and a hammer. The end of the axle where the cotter pin goes collapsed. So where is a good place for axles? I want a +2 that can handle jumping.
I don't have the ability to post pictures on here right now. The threaded end where the castle nut goes (that keeps the hub on) mushroomed. All four cotter pin holes are half closed now, and the nut will not thread on. Is the g-force axle a good axle? It's not to expensive and looks like would hold up to what I would put it through.
