Re: Wheel bearing stuck on shaft

Any suggestions? Thanks.
I used a propane torch and a screwdriver (to pry) with a sledge and about 30+ minutes of beating on it in order for my right wheel bearing to budge a few weeks back. I doubt the heat from the torch will cause any damage (it's basically all steel). I also soaked the piss out of mine in Pb Blaster, which seemed to make a pretty good difference too.
