Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

I have had good luck with the three leg puller:
Loosen the axle nut, install the puller, whack the hammer arm with a BFH a few times and then take the hammer arm off and smack the end of the puller a few good ones. This applys a shock to the axle shaft in the direction you want the shaft to go.20 years ago I had an axle shaft I just could not get to come off, I worked on it intermittenly for several days. An old mechanic waltzed into my garage, took one look at the axle, grabbed an 8# sledge hammer and with one whack that puppy came loose!
That was my lesson for that day and I have succesfully used that procedure ever since.
I like the Never Sneeze idea. I will use that from here on out.
