Sorry guys but its probably not!!! left hand theads the clutch nut is peened down on the threads dont beleive me look you eill see little lines or punch marks on the nut their is a special tool you can buy or you can make one like i did to hold the clutch hub still.You were on the right track with the impact wrench if that dont work you dont have a big enough air supply for the wrench good old elbow grease should get it i did it by hand after i had the tool. PS- you must punch the nut in a few places once reinstalled. I learned the hard way by breaking it first

I do believe that you are dealing with left handed threads, so try counter- clockwise on that nut

How do I remove the castle nut on the hub assembly of my 2001 Dodge Ram? I need to replace the hub but I can't get the castle nut to budge. Impact guns and breaker bars won't move it at all.


the nut that you are trying to undo may be a left hand thread ( anti clockwise to undo ) try it that way to see if it loosens it ........cheers.

I cant get the front hub assembly off my 03 buick rendevous


Items/Tools needed:

35mm or 1 3/8" axle socket
3/4 or 19mm socket for lug nuts or lug wrench
15mm socket for brake caliper and bracket
13mm socket for wheel bearing bolts (extentions as well)
Breaker bar or impact wrench to remove lug nuts and axle nut (Note: Do not use impact driver to install axle nut).
Torque wrench for axle nut
Hub puller - Optional
Hammer

Directions

1. Jack the appropriate side of the car up. Make sure the rear wheels are blocked and/or set the parking brake. Use a jackstand to support vehicle at subframe for safety.
2. Remove wheel.
3. Remove brake caliper and bracket.
4. Remove rotor.
5. Using 35mm axle socket, remove axle nut, turn counterclockwise. You will either need an impact or a long breaker bar. They are installed with a lot of torque or may be rusted out or corrroded.
6. Push the axle back as far as possible. It won't come all the way out or through the hub, but will become loose. You can either get a tool that will push it out like a hub puller, or just use a hammer making sure not to hit the axle shaft threads and damage them. Put the axle nut back on the axle shaft so it is flush with the top. Then place 35mm axle nut socket on the axle nut and tap on the 35mm socket with the hammer not the threads on the axle shaft spline.
7. Disconnect the wheel sensor connector and then remove hub side connector from the bracket (unclip).
8. Take a 13mm socket with extensions as needed and remove the 3 bolts on the backside of the bearing around the axle. Be sure to use PBBlaster to help loosen the bolts.
9. The hub/bearing should come loose without need needing a hub puller. Be sure to note the sheet metal spacer between the hub and spindle with also has the bracket for the wheel sensor connector.
10. Double check both parts (hubs) to make sure they match.
11. Lube the axle shaft splines with good quality bearing grease before installing the hub. Clean off any old grease and crud first.
12. Install the hub assembly with the wires from the bearing at the bottom. Line up hub splines with axle shaft splines and push in on hub. Note: Don't forget that sheet metal plate between the spindle and wheel bearing. Note: Make sure the wheel sensor wires don't get pinched by the axle shaft.
13. Install the 3 13mm bolts to 96ft lbs. Service manual recommends replacing with new ones. Some hubs like AC Delco will come with new bolts which have threadlocker.
14. Install the axle nut. As tightened down it will pull the driveshaft the rest of the way in. Torque axle nut to GM specs of 159 ft-lbs or the figure specified by the hub manufacturer. It is recommended to use a new axle nut but not necessary.
15. Install the rotor, brackets and caliper. Torque caliper bracket bolts to 137 ft-lb and caliper pin bolts to 63 ft-lb.
16. Install the connector to the sheet metal bracket and reconnect both connectors.
17. Install the wheel. Torque lug nuts in a star pattern at 100 ft-lbs each.
18. Road test car and ensure any ABS and TRAC OFF light are off.

1999 Chevrolet Blazer driverside wheel bearing locking nut on the cv joint won't loosen can't remove bearing until i remove the nut i tryed 36mm socket with impact gun still nut will not loosen need...


This will require a "breaker" bar. I would use a good quality 1/2 inch socket set with a fixed wrench handle. To extend your power, I would put a pipe extension onto the wrench and turn until the bolt "breaks" free. NOTE: make sure you are removing the bolt in the correct direction and not tightening it. Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

1990 acura legend auto. trans. need to remove pass. side hub nut', i am using a 36mm impact socket to loosen it ,but no luck!


You will need to use a really long manual breaker bar to crack that nut. They bind on really tight, going from hot to cold over years of driving. Soak it with some liquid wrench. It takes substantial leverage to crack the nut, but it will come loose with enough force.

Whats it take to install a clutch hub for a 1988 police bike flhpt


To install a clutch is not what I call an easy job but not an extremely difficult job either. You are going to need some special tools however.

The tools you'll need are an impact wrench, a large socket to fit the compensator nut and one to fit the mainshaft nut, a primary locking bar, torque wrenches that will torque to 150 foot pounds and 70 foot pounds in the left handed direction, and a special tool required to disassemble the clutch assembly.

First, disconnect the battery, then drain the primary and remove the outer primary cover. Use the impact wrench and appropiate socket to remove the compensator sprocket nut from the engine shaft. Remove the snap ring holding the release plate in the center of the clutch assembly and remove the LEFT HANDED THREADED mainshaft nut. Take the nut off the chain tensioner and remove the primary drive (engine sprocket, adjuster, and clutch assembly) as a unit.

Now, using the special tool, compress the clutch spring and remove the lock ring holding the clutch assembly together. Disassemble the clutch and reassemble it with the new clutch hub. Reinstall the primary drive. Apply one line of Loctite 271 inside the mainshaft nut and torque it to 70-80 foot pounds LEFT HANDED. Apply two lines of Loctite 271 (red) to the compensator nut and torque it to 150-165 foot pounds. This is what the locking bar is for, to keep the engine from turning while applying the torque to these two nut. Adjust the primary chain and reinstallt the outer primary. Add about one quart of lubricant to the primary. Reconnect the battery. Adjsut the clutch and cable.

Good Luck

How do I get the clutch hub nut off in order to replace the clutch hub?


You would be best getting an impact driver. Just put the right size metric socket on it then strike the end with a hammer to remove or to tighten the nut. Use it also to loosen and tighten the case screws. It is the most used tool in my shop. Sears has them as does any tool store. Just get a 3/8" drive (not the 1/2" drive) and you will make stuck screws, nuts and bolts a thing of the past.

Nut or the end of the axle


Get a strong socket and a log breaker bar. I have a 4 foot breaker bar that hold 3/4 drive sockets. Mine was tight also but it came loose with that bar. The only other suggestion would be to heat it up quickly with a torch and go for it.

Wheel bearing


I've had that problem a few times myself, here's a few things you can do.

1.) Make sure you have the car in gear, this will keep the wheel assembly from spinning with the nut while you try to loosen it. Be sure the car is jacked up and secured with the e-brake.

2.) Ensure you have the right size socket for the hub nut, and use a long socket extention(breaker bar, the longer the socket extion the more torque you will get on nut) with a heavy duty socket wrench.

3.) If it still won't budge go grab a small blow torch and heat up the nut. You can also try penetrating oil to help loosen the nut. Alot of times if the bearings get really bad before being replaced they can sieze up alot of nuts.

It's a start, good luck and I hope this helps.
