I'm disassembling my 86 waggy 44, I popped off those chrome covers got the snap ring off but can't get the drive flanges to budge. There is a bit of rust on them so I hit it with some PB. Is there a special tool I need? Chilton manual directions are "remove drive flange".

Might be a c-clip on the end of the stub axle (outside clip). Might also be a larger one nestled in the groove in the hub body (inside clip).

Sometimes theres a lot of grease, rust, etc to make it diffcult to see :D

I also believe that there is a large snap ring on the ID of the wheel hub. Can be hard to see if there is rust/grease.

The exploded view I have is a Chevy full time hub (figure it's the same as the Jeep full time). I got the snap ring off the snub shaft. I'll take a closer look and see if there is a snap ring around the hub.

Thanks

It will be found on the INSIDE of the hub...a small groove with a giant clip nested in it. That keeps the drive flange from falling out and the axle clip (which I assume is the one you already removed) keeps the wheel from falling off if the spindle breaks.
To get the large clip out, you'll need a couple small standard screwdrivers or even easier, a small pick set...dust dig em out by pushing one end of the circle clip until it pops toward the flange, stick the other screwdriver under it and pop it out.

Yep, need to get the clip around the stub shaft and then the big on around the inside of the hub. Press the flange in (there is a spring behind it) and clean the splines and it will come out easy.
