SOURCE: Rear axle

i'm guessing the wheel was rusted to the axle and you tried to get it off with a little help from a two-by-four and a sledge, right? there is a spring clip that holds the axle in place, it is on the inside of the trans. did the lower casing crack? the trans will have to be removed and set up on a roomy bench, about 20 bolts holding the cases together, then careful prying on specific areas and the cases come apart, carefully. otherwise, gears and shafts fall out and if you don't know where they go, you're up the creek. not an easy job, especially if you're not mechanically inclined. a tip: order the parts you need before tearing into it, or the weeks you wait for the order, you'll likely forget how everything goes together - take it to a good shop or get another trans

Nightrod 2006 harley after taking nut off rear axle should axle tap out


Yes it should.

BUT........

You have to relieve the load on it.
By that I mean, even with the rear tire off the ground, the weight of the rear tire/wheel/brake assembly is pushing down on the axle (gravity).
So you have to lift the rear wheel a little as you tap it out, playing up and down until you find the "sweet spot" that the axle comes out easily.

How do you remove the rear axle on a dodge ram 1500 p-up 2 wheel drive?


1st jack and use jack stands to safely lift the truck.disconnect brake lines and cables, remove tires,unbolt universal rear end to driveshaft, unbolt center bolts from axle to leaf springs, pull the rear end out from the side-much easier with two people. reverse process to put the new one on. I assume when you say axle you mean entire rear end. If you need to remove one axle side just take off tire and brake then remove rear end punkin cover and pull shear pin to remove your ring gear and planetary gear-pull axle shaft.

Need to take off back tire need a new tire and not


Put the bike up on the main stand. Remove the rear brake caliper assy. Loosen the rear axle and pull it out. Now pull out on the wheel, pull it away from the rear gear housing, the wheel will disengage a gear inside and then it is ready to pull out the back.

Wil putting two size tires on a isuzuvehicross make the transferre case go out.


Yes...
The tire sizes are important on any 4X4 vehicle... IF you engage the 4X4 ... or is you have an AWD vehicle...

If the tires are different sizes , front and rear... then the front and rear axles will turn at different speeds... not in sync with the gearing of the transfer case.

Unless this vehicle is being driven on snow , ice or mud.... while in 4x4 mode... this is very bad.... for axles and transfer case...

Have a 2007 fxstb with 200mm rear tire and want to put axle covers on it which requires removal of axle,purchased another axle to keep old axle in place while i put mount hardware on....will this work?


yes, if you push the new axle in while pulling the old axle out the other side, you can take the old axle completely out and install the backing plate for the axle cover on that side. Then, reverse the procedure and do the other side. But, it's not really necessary to do all this and purchase another axle. If you simply lift the bike until the weight is off the rear tire but it's still on the ground, usually the rear wheel won't go anywhere. You're still going to have to loosen the tension on the rear drive belt though.

I have a 1993 vulcan that needs new tires. I have the front wheel off no problem, but I don't even know where to start taking the rear apart. Would appreciate any expert advice.


Easy as pie. Put bike on center stand or use swingarm stand. Remove nut from rear axle. Remove pinch bolt from rear axle, and pull axle out. Take spacer from between frame and rear brake. Remove brake strut, and brake caliper. Pull wheel out of final drive, and lower to floor. You might have to let the air out of the tire to get it out from between the final drive and swingarm. After changing the rear tire inflate it to seat the bead, deflate to get back in place, then reinflate. Put some grease on the splines in the final drive before reinstalling the wheel, this will make it easier for the next change.

How do you change the bearings on the rear axle of a f150 Ford pickup? And does my year model require the bearings to be pressed on?


you have to block up the rear end then pull the cover off the rear end then pull tires and drums off then
go to the punkin and pull the center pin out its a 5/16 or 8mm bolt out slid the pin out then push axles in take the C-clips out then pull axles out
you will need a axle slide hammer to get the bearing out and
then tap the new one in just far enough to get the cyl. in
then put all back to gether

How to remove a 2000 dodge ram rear end


Unhook your dive shaft from the rear end. Take your U bolts of off your springs. Make sure that you disconnect the break lines from the rear axle. remove your shocks. It should be free at this point. In stubborn cases, you may have to put a small jack in between the frame and axle and apply very light pressure. Hope this helps.

Rear tire wear


Sounds like your alignment is out, take it and get it balanced, If not that then something has broken in the rear end causing your tire to wear wrong
