Hi
I just finished my 67 112 and within 2 weeks naturally one of my rear wheel seals goes out!!!! Now I need to pull the hub, so I get my puller and start on it and it doesnt budge, so I threw a little WD-40 on it and tried it again, still nothin. I decided to get my porto power and try that and It still wont budge. So since I am pretty good with my transaxle I decided to pull everything apart except for the differential. Now all I got is the axle in there and I tried my puller, and my porto power and still got nothin. The stupid thing wouldnt budge with 10 tons of pressure, and with my luck I pulled the snap-ring of on the other hub and with a tap of my mallet it came off!!!!!! Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this thing off? Its really startin to give me a headache.
Thanks

I'm not familiar with that axle, but it might help to use a good penetrating oil (something like pb blaster) instead of a lubricant. Just a friendly tip for future reference.

is it spline or tapered with a key?

On my 400 which has tapered with 1/4" keys, I put the puller on with the nut loose, then heated the hub with a map gas soldering torch to expand it. Sounds like a gun going off when they pop loose. Having the nut on is a must if you don't want them to fly three feet.

Pb blaster is a great tool. I got pistons out of a rusted up engine with it, and most of the valves. There was enough rust that the motor was toast, but it got em out. Let them soak in pb overnight and it should loosen up.

It is a splined axle and I did forget to mention that when I used my porto-power I did heat up the hub and it still didnt work. Where does a guy go to get PB blaster.
I think ill give that a shot. Thanks

I always find that impact works better than pure pull (or push).

A simple puller with a bolt that you can hit with an appropriate amount of hammer is my answer.

This is my hydraulic press.



It looks like a wood splitter (it will do that also!!), but, its main intent was a hydraulic press that I can hit the end of with a sledge hammer.

That is a piece of 1/2" wall tube where the splitting wedge can also be inserted.

Get a bigger hammer!!

I'm not sure, Monti, 'cause when I look at MY axle, there's a great honking big gear set in the middle of it... If I get a chance today, I'll go out and take a pic for you... In the meantime, here's the Peerless transaxle manual for you to take a look at to see what you think... Its got really good tearapart instructions, and drawings. The Peerless in your 112 is a 2300.

(you probably already have this manual, but I thought, just in case...)
