Question about Cars & Trucks
The aluminium hub on my kleenmaid washing machine KAW793 is seized to the spline. Tried using a gear puller but that just cracked the hub. How can I get the hub off?
The only way to get it off is to cut form the circumferance to the center avoiding the shaft. I take it you have tried heat and WD 40?

Need to be pressed off Take whole assembly off and press hub out of bearing Crack retaining ring behind bearing with a cold chisel Press hub back on to new bearing

SOURCE: Hello-How do you remove the
Do you have the assembly off the car? If you do, do you know anyone with a press? That will move the splines of the CV joint after you properly support the flange hub. If not, you need the type of puller with a yoke that accepts the wheel bolts to attach it to the hub. Then you can apply enough force safely. The hub is very tough, you can wind on a lot of force. If you are attempting to change a front wheel bearing you WILL need a press anyway. It can be done with BIG hammers but you risk damaging parts.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for the expert mechanical knowledge of this very specific challenge. Bravo!!"
most likely the bearings in the hub are rusted to the axel. If you work at it you can use a point air chisel to push the axel shaft out you will have to replace the bearing in the hub. worst case you could take the hub and axel off together and press the axel out in a press. either way you will have to replace the hub bearing.

WELL SOME EARLIER FORD VECHICLES, JUST REMOVE STEERING WHEEL MOUNTING NUT THEN PULL STEERING WHEEL STRAIGHT OFF THE STEERING SHAFT DONT NEED NO PULLER.
