What is the best way to get hubs that are stuck to an axle unstuck? I have tried heating them with a torch and just cant get them off with a hammer. do they make a reasonable set of gear pullers that big? On a 70 oliver.

Some people make their own puller with a piece of heavy steel across the axle and all thread going to the hub.

If there anything like my 36 HP 70 get ready for the biggest battle you have ever fought. It took heat to the tune of 900 deg and a 20 bottle jack bottomed out pressure and a BFH to get mine off. TOOK 3hrs each side. Did you guy's get the rod?

I built a puller like Craig said and used a large gear puller at the same time on the last hub I pulled off a Massey 44. I tightened the puller until it started to bend (1 1/8" steel, used lots of PB Blaster and then had to hit the back of hub at the axle with a sledge hammer (piece of aluminum between to cushion the blow). Took 2 or 3 evenings to get it to move.

25 years ago we took a set of axles out of a 70 Oliver down to Cat's shop in KC. Put them in a 150 ton press. 1st one shook the shop when it let loose at 120 tons; second let loose at 90....

If it is rust that is holding it on get it as hot as you can then cool it down with water as fast as you can and this will often times break them loose.

I made a puller that fit around the hub & used a 10 ton bottle jack,got torch out got it hot & still wouldn't budge.So I found a guy w/a big hyd press,took it(the axle & hub w/wheel) to him & it took quite a bit of pressure but that came off.

see if you can get liquid nitrogen. from a local welding supply store....you will have to barrow a container like what they put bull siemen in.....pour it on axle....wearing gloves and becarefull.... it will shrink axle being so cold....on both sides then hit hub.....

We built a puller and used the power-pack at the same time, never used heat though.

I built a puller for a 9 bolt hub that had a bolt going to each hole and a 1" threaded rod and nut in the center. By the time I got it off the 1" threaded rod I used had mushrumed out and formed a little point that went right into the center of the axle. There is no way I would have gotten them off with out breaking them had I not built it.
