Well I'm having trouble getting the hub off the spindle, anyone have any ideas? The bearings and everything seem good because it spins pretty freely.
This is for a blaster with drum brakes btw.

Lube it with some wd-40 and put a puller on it. I'm not sure of the correct name, but I have this thing with two 'arms' on it and a huge bolt in the middle. Put the arms around something and turn the bolt and it pulls it off. Or you could try a block of wood behind it and lightly tapping it with a hammer.

The puller would probably work but is there any other way without a puller? I'll try the block of wood tomorrow.

if the hubs spin freely the problem is most likely the shoes holding it on........................ back the brake adjusters off and they should slide right off

No, the brake lines arent connected.

I would use a block of wood and hit it with a hammer. Or, you could put the wheel back on, and pull on that.

Get some good penetrating oil and let it sit a while, then use the wood block and hammer to free it. I tried this before a few times and it always works great for me :tup:
