Rear Axle Repair Help
- Hi, I am in the process of trying to disassemble the rear axle. So far
we have milled off the "Big Nut" and tried to tap the area under the
nut to pull out the compression fitting. We used a 1/4" tap and tried
to pull it out, but the taps do not hold. The material appears to be
too soft. Also, tried to weld to the fitting and pull it out. The
weld did not hold. Do we need to use bigger bolts to pull it out?
Any recommendations would be appreciated. Is there a way to push the
axle out now that the bolt is milled off... or is there still too much
pressure on it for it to let go? thanks, Eino.
