RE: How to unseized a wheel off the rear drum ?


pound all 5 wheel studs into the drum so that they no longer are holding the rim...drag it around the yard till it wobbles ????

spray the crap out of it with your favorite lube !!

it's only steel on steel ,,,it's got to come off ???

Did you spray lube into the adjuster at the back bottom of the drum. Then with a brake tool or flathead srewdriver turn the tumbler, so the shoes come in. Maybe take the drum and wheel off at the same time.

IMG_1543.JPGIMG_1544.JPGI forgot to mention I got the wheel off within 18 hours with a bumper jack and a 2 x 4 behind the rearend against the other wheel/backing plate and a constant pressure... it fell off the next morning when I went to ad some pressure cranking the jack some more, It was a farmer who told me about this idea.

Congratulations!  it acutally looks like it came off clean, I thought maybe some of the cast iron from the brake drum would be stuck to the steel wheel.

Thanks Clint, like I mention before it was welded around the axle part, look behind the honeycomb wheel, it's like a tube unlike rally IIs...
