Having issues pulling the hub out of the carrier. I’m open to suggestions on how to get these two pieces apart.
I have a 20 ton press but the hub and carrier are wider than my press. Short of welding up a big horse shoe collar to fit around the carrier with stand offs to another plate. Here’s a picture of the template I made a template to cut a collar out of a piece of 5/16" plate. How appropriate for this tear down for the template to look like a
Ok, so it doesn’t look like a horse shoe.
I’d then weld some vertical stand offs that will hold another plate for the attached press to push against. Thus pushing on the carrier while pulling on the wheel hub.
I’m also curious on how to get the fulcrum bushings and bearings out with minimal damage. I’m resisting using a drift because I don’t want to mar the surfaces. Open to suggestions.
In typical Mark fashion, I tend to make the job harder that needs to be, so I’m throwing this one out to the collective to see if I’m completely off base, and once again making this job harder than it needs to be.
Thank you in advance
