Drum removal help please

Postby onemanpeloton » Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:15 pm

Hi all

Trying to replace some broken wheel studs on my 2006 t350 rwd.

Im trying to get the drum off but it hasnt budged. Despite reaching in through one of the stud holes to slacken off the shoe adjuster.

Do i need to remove the big central nut? Picture in the link velow

Thankyou

Obv make sure your and brake is off lol, repetitive hitting with a hammer you may also be able to use a lever to help, there could be a type of hub puller on the market that would fit, but if all else fails cut it off and buy a new one I can't imagine they would be expensive tbh..

Yep...and they're bloody tight too...~ a million lb-ft..! :shock: You'll need a nice long 3/4" drive bar with 65mm socket, and probably a pipe extension...I'm ~90kgs & had to jump on 4ft long bar to get mine undone..!

Drivers side, (if RHD).. will be right hand thread, passenger side will be left hand thread.

So ive been to the dealer this morning. Ordered 5 new studs, a new 65mm nut, a gasket for between the half shaft and drum and the oil seal that sits (i think) on the axle behind the drum.

Any other parts I need or tips for assembly?

On the Mk7 RWD Dana axle, (disc brake), the bearing is "wet" and lubed by the oil in the diff housing, I suspect the Mk6 Dana is similar...but yes, as Dumper mentions, never put a bearing in dry, only takes a few revolutions when dry and with a couple of tons of weight to damage/destroy an otherwise good bearing...same with the seal running surface...give it a goodly coating of grease on the running faces when fitting the new seal, too much grease can just be a nuisance, none can be a big drama.
