I beehive it should be sliding of how it is. Are the bearings bad? Seized to the shaft maybe?


Also a side note, you can get a manual from here if you need one

I have split several 2x4's and destroyed a brand new dead blow hammer and hasn't budged nothing holding it on that I can see even went so far as to soak it in wd40

I really have  No idea why it's not coming off then. Every time I've taken mine off I've just taken the wheel off, the center nut, and the brake caliper and just yanked it off.

Why are you taking it off? Are the bearings shot?

I'm wondering if it's possible for the inner bearing races to be rusted onto the spindle? :o

i had a rusted race on a wheel barrow axle and it needed putting in a vice and a lot of sledge

can you mount the hub in a way as to be able to beat the crap out of the spindle with a brass drift?

maybe soak it in PB blaster for a few days first, i had a stuck fitting on my air-compressor and bent a snap-on wrench trying to get it off
spent a day soaking it in PBlaster every hour and it came off a bit easyer
All actions come with an equal and opposite reaction, and sometimes a scar.

if bearings are in really bad shape then "heat and beat" get it nice and hot with a torch and pound the *&^% out of it

Well.... I'd would assume after all of this time you got it off?
