Pressing knuckle off my d60: UPDATED
I am progressing on my front d60. I had to take a few days off after dropping it on my toe. Thank God I had good boots on or I might have lost it.
Anyway, I shortened the axle today by 4". Now I am trying to remove the axle tube from the knuckle (or "C"). I ground the weld until I could see a hairline crack and then tried to press the tube off with my 12 ton HF press. I had the press creaking, groaning and bending. No Joy!
Should it be this hard to get off? Do I need a bigger press? If so, how big?
