PostSubject: How do you remove stuck rear wheel hubs?   Wed Feb 17, 2010 6:06 pm

Hey guys. My rear end finally blew today (to be expected)
So i have another rear end but one of the wheels are stuck on.
I've been heating it up with mapp gas and beating on it for hours.
I don't care if the wheel gets beat up because i don't need it.
It's soaking in liquid wrench right now.
I know this is a problem with lawn mower rear ends that have been sitting for a while,so if you guys know another way let me know =D

thanks

Id try cutting it off with a grinder- i have a LT11 craftsman that i literally bent the axles on trying to get the wheels off- transmission case was broken anyway by PO ( after i spent 2 hours on it) - if it hasnt come off with heat- most likely it wont.

when i was installing my new tires on my stock rims, the rims were a bitch to get off. I had to use a two by four about 5 feet long with some WD40 and after an hour i got em off.

If the wheel doesnt matter, then what you could do if you have a gear pulley laying about is cut holes in the flat part of the rim so it can grip. Probably alot of work though. That or just go mad with a grinder, and cut the shaft on the wheel down to nothing. Least that tranny should be good for spare spider gears if nothing else!

I agree with chunk, try a puller...


But, if you do cut it off, flip it so the outside of the wheel is facing down on the ground or bench or something, then pound out the axle shaft with a BFH. Basicly knock it out backwards. You should still be able to save the wheel.

I see what fearless is saying. Id take off the tranny and put a short rod against the shaft then hold the tire and pound on the rod. If you dont understand ust tell me and il make a vid and put it on youtube and send you the link

Yeah, instead of trying to beat the wheel off of the axle shaft, beat the shaft out of the wheel. After you cut it off, of course.

When i come across some stubborn wheels, i jack up the rear n try to hold my leags against the back of the tire ( its not easy) n pound on the axle end with an old mandrel shaft, usually they come off after a couple wacks - that one didnt- looking forward to doing that on the other 94 murray i have as well...

oh i see what yall are saying.
I've been using a pipe and hitting it with a sledge hammer after i put heat on it for a few minutes.
I actually did beat the shaft out of the transaxle. Of course not on purpose lol
I should have just cut the wheel off in the first place =\

I'm going to take it apart in a little while,see if i can fix it.

all you did was break the little c-clip that holds the axle onto the spider gear. you can replace it or weld it. Not that it matters...

I got the wheel ground off.
I welded a little notch to hold the axle in.
(better then it was before =D)
I welded the spider gears too =D
I got it all in and ready for muddin again.
It does take away from the turning radius but not very much.

Some tractors seem to do better with a locked rearend then others. My murray, dosen't do very well. But the craftsman does.

Its got alot to do with the weight you have over the front end. Mississippi's mudder has a big v-twin on it, so I'd imagine that helps.

Glad you got it off though man, hope to see some videos of you demonstrating the turning radius. Might help me decide if I want to do mine or not

Yeah the opposed 18.5 will be over the front of mine as well- altho ill be over the back ( out weigh the motor by alot! LOL!)- might need to experement with some weights for the front/middle.

Im not exactally sure where ill mount the gas tank n battery - since the motor has a fuel pump- it could go under the seat and the battery up front near the motor- once i get a rolling chassis and mount the body ill see.
