I had already had them in the 50 Ton press and had them pretty warm and they didn't even think about moving. 

 

Brian, were you spraying the hubs with penetrating oil while heating and pressing? Penetrating oil works good, but when heated, it works even better.

Troy, I had tried penetrating oil, with and without heat and it didn't make much of a difference, the hub won't move. I was afraid to put too much pressure on it and break the hub, and that is what I wanted to save.

Eye, and sometimes that provides enough heat that they just press right out after. What a bugger... nice job Brian :thumbs:

These hubs are notorious for being a PITA to get off, thats why you dont see many on ebay. They usually break. My D200 basket case has one that is brazed back together on it because the PO tried to pull it.

I may have a time getting the hubs off the modded MF1650 that these will go onto, but if they are bad enough, I'll just cut them off, then installing these 6 bolt hubs will be a breeze.  I don't want to risk messing up my axles to save 5 bolt hubs I may even never need.  I already have a spare set anyway.

Is that the MF2050 you built?

 

Btw, Do you have a reamer in case the hubs are tight? If not, can you mic. the axles so I can fit them before I send them to you.

Yep, the 2050.  I'll use the 5 bolt rims with tires on the diesel JB.  I've got reamers, but not sure if that large.  I'll mic the inside of a MF14 hub I already have off, as they are the same as the 1650 hubs.

Daniel, few things that I have learned in the heating business is working with cast iron on old steam systems. #1 after being together for the last 50+ years don't even brother trying to take fittings apart, we just grab a 5 lb. hammer, they break pretty easy if hit right, practice makes perfect :D . On those hubs, I would cut down from the top with a saws-all as far as possible, then just use a chisel and 5 pounder into the cut, 3 minutes later, cleaning up the axle :thumbs:  Have fun.
