Ok, before I take too much crap over this, note that even tho I am a Sears guy, I have never had to pull a hub off one before. On the ST/12 that I'm sure most of you have seen the finished pics of from my winter project. Well, I noticed the seals are leaking around the hub, but oddly enough, they only leak while its down on its wheels. When I have the back end up on stands, no leaks. Anyway, I removed the tires and removed the (3) set screws from each side. (all are soaking in p-oil cause they are pretty rusted). I sprayed in the holes the set screws came out of, also the front of the hub between the hub and axle as best I could with PB Blaster. I tapped the back side with a mini sledge as I rotated the hub as to hit in different spots. I have bout a 1/4 inch play in each side where I can move the hub in/out, but it won't come off. What am I missing????? Should I just continue to work the same way til it pops? Use a puller? I know to be careful with a puller because the hub can break but is there something I haven't removed? I've looked everywhere on it and don't see anything.
ok...it's a 1972 Sears ST/12 and it's leaking from the groove between the hub and the axle that you can see in the pics. If anyone knows the seal part number that'd save me time lookin it up too. Thanks guys!!
