I set in to taking the rims off the center dish today. The square drive locks would not budge. I heated the outside of one and soaked it with power lube and heated some more. Then tried a 1/2 inch drive impact wrench that runs over 600 ft. lbs of torque. It didn't move a bit.
Anyone know any tricks foe getting them loose?

I have a to 35
I had one of the wheel to rim locks: lockup, I took the adj wheel lock off by loosing the two nuts. The lock came off, I guess you could take all four of them off.

Then put each of the locks in a vise, heat them with torch and they will break loose.

On the real stubborn ones, I"ve had to unbolt them from the rims and work on them in a vise. You can get the lube in them better too. I started on the bottom ones first. HTH"s lee

The best way is to take the 2 bolts off like maxwell99 said. Thats what I did.

If they are like the AC wheel locks ( the patent holder), take the bolts off, and drop them complete, as others have said. Heat and Beat in a vise, get 'em turning, a little, then take the snap ring off the back, and drive the cam pin out the front. Remember that the cam "bolt" is just a pin, with no threads. Run the pin against a wire wheel, till clean, and it fits the hole loose enough to turn. Re assemble all the parts, and Lube with Neversieze. Be sure not to lose the rail rider, that goes between the cam, and rail, when you dis-assemble.

I put them in a vise and heated with a torch until they were smokin hot. I then used Loctite Penetrating Oil and let it cool. I then torqued on em a little, then reheated/oiled. They eventually came loose. Lighter oils just flashed off but the heavier Loctite Penetrating Oil hung in there.
