No I'm not chasing wild animals around.
I'm TRYING to get 2 wheels & tires off of a scrap axel.

Nothing is working sadly.

I sprayed it and let it soak with every brand penetrating oil on my self. Then I beat the snot out of it with a 3 lb maul. Not budging.

Tried this tonight. Portable fork lift with 2000 lbs of lift capacity. Nothing.

I'm letting it soak overnight under pressure, maybe that will work
If not, I'll hit it with the torch and try heat the next time I have time to play with it. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1377830524.667497.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1377830537.843996.jpg

I've never seen them stick this bad. But I guess it happens.
Any tips ? Please chime in.

Thanks

Please, please do not use the torch.... Don't wanna hear about you going through a wall....BTW, I have been driving one of my splined axled riders around w/o the axle clips for months and weekly treatments of Pipe Break, to no avail.... Good luck bub!

Heat gets my vote but remove the pressure from the lift first. Try torque, if you can, rather than pulling. If you can get the wheel to turn even slightly it might break the bond.

I had an axel I was trying to save the wheels off of. Same thing.
I managed to save 1 of them only, by driving it further on (3/32) then ground the end of the shaft clean and worked it on & off until free.

Tried on the other side and never did get it, even with blue wrench involved.

Torch was the only thing that let me get the severely rusted axle to rim connections apart on my old cub..  I gave it heat and then a good whack with the sledge and an old hunk of iron piping to loosen things up and it came apart begrudgingly..  Those things are a PITA for sure..  If you use heat don't use the lift as you will toast the rim for sure..  Work directly on the stuck connection or things will bend/distort..  I pulled it off the rest of the way with a puller and a couple bolts and it was a Biotch to get it off- period!  Gobs of never-seize were liberally applied before reassembly!
