Is the hub bolt right or left hand thread??? I searched and found the tightening torque for it, but nothing was found about how hard it is to remove! I had an 8 foot pipe on my 1" breaker bar and 55mm socket! If that breaker bar flexed any more, I know it was going to break!

Who knows the trick to remove these???

Do I need to borrow a torque multiplying head for this???

Thanks for the help:confused:

If you think you have pounded on the bolt enough, pound some more. I had a sledge hammer with a 3 foot long handle and had to hit the damn bolt at least 10 good times. I ended having to use a big pipe wrench with a piece of 2 1/2inch by 7 foot long pipe. Did the trick, also I am 6'3" and weigh 300 pounds. :flipoff2:
And I had to damn near jump on the thing :bounce:
I am sure glad it wasn't left hand thread.

I broke a few tools before I borrowed a one inch inpact gun to take it off.
Then no sweat. Most tire places use those big impacts.
Good luck.

I had a 1 in impact and no dice. They are a boogger to get off if the rears are not under something. We made up a device that basically held the hub by the wheel studs by angle iron and welded 2 inch square tube to the 2 pieces of angle and stuck the square tube into a reciever hitch. 6 foot long breaker pipe and some gorilla strength from my 6 3 255 body and off if came. A mutha but not a fawker.

Here is what I had to do to get mine, off. A little heat helps, but not too much, unless your going to be replacing all the seals anyway. I broke a china made 3/4 inch breaker bar, the sears one bent too, but didn't snap.
