Did you loosen the axle nuts and back them off first?after being sidetracked for a while decided to take up the frozen brakes again and cant figure out how to get the axle out cant seem to get the brake housing to come off .. any suggestions for a rookie would be appreciated.
No, you should be able to loosen the axle nuts on the brake side only and slide them and the washers, back on the axle. Then take out the bolts around the outer edge of the brake cover and it should come off.Yes, only on the side with the brake drum - should I take off both sides?
Yeah, after you remove the axle nuts, you have to remove the big washer before the brake cover will come off. I think there's a small taper washer in front of the big washer that has to come off first. After you get the washers off, the cover should come off.I cant figure out what exactly is supposed to come off. Is that a washer (apps 3 1/2" wide) holding on the housing? and should that be what Im trying to get to come off ? (posted a pic on first post today)
