F250 Front Spline, rotor, hub

I'm having some serious problems

I have 85' F250 and I'm tring to take out the carrier. I started by pulling off the 4x4 hub and the clip that holds a washer in(looks like a gear but they call it a washer)

I'm having problems taking off the rotor. I have a tool that goes into the spot of the washer and is suppost to ratch off. Well I can't get the part to move, let alone ratch.

If anyone has an ideas or know how about this... It would be greatly appreciated.

(I quess it's suppost to be bearings I'm pulling out)

I have pic's of it all

HELP! Please [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

That nut takes a little muscle sometimes.

Re: F250 Front Spline, rotor, hub

Well I'm afriad to go any further with it. I was using my torque wrench to jar it free and I was up to 60 pds.

So I decieded to go with my impact wrench and that didn't get it free. I heard that it was suppost to be only torqued down to 20 pds.

I have tried both directions.

I dont want to strip the thing either

Thanks

If you have pics then post them! I'm not sure what you're talking about, but if you're talking about the outer locknut that takes a special socket to get off, the specs call for 150 ft lbs so it will probably take some leverage to free it. Then you'll pull off the lock washer by hand, then the inner adjusting nut that shouldn't be more a couple ft lbs and requires the same special socket. All nuts are normal thread, so go CCW to get them off. You say you have pics, get them up here so we're on the same playing field!

Looks like you haven't even got the hub out yet. There's a big ring clip in a groove just inside the edge of the housing there. Pull that ring out then you can pull that aluminum hub out and get to the rest of the assembly.

Re: F250 Front Spline, rotor, hub

yep, BP is right, all you have done is pulled out the guts of the lockout, you still need to get that outer body removed before you can get to the locknuts to use that socket. take a pick or very small flathead and run it around what appears to be a lip on the inside of the main hub assembly... there is a ~1/2" gap in that outer snap ring and you can pry under it with the screwdriver and pry it out toward you with another small instrument. that thing is always a pain and is much easier to get out in the future if you bend the ends upward a little. first things first though... find the snap ring (you can actually see it in your second pic), pry it out, then use a couple of the dial cap screws to pull the body out. then you get to use your fancy socket [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Here you go, this is the snap ring you need to remove:

Here's a hub removal on a 93 d44ttb that is similar:

FINALLY! You guys were correct. After I pulled that larger ring out.. the hub came out and I was able to see the nut that need to be taken out..

I also there was a nut after that one.. I think it is just used for holding the other one in place.

You guys rock! Thanks a lot! [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

the nut closet to the bearings is the nut that sets the tightness/preload of the bearings. the s3econd nut is the locking mechanism to keep the first from backing off.
