Thanks to all for the responses on my first question. Now, no laughing but I have the wheel off and there is this plastic dust cover on the end of the axle. How do I get this off, it has been on there since Moses was a baby. Do I twist, pull, pry, what am I going to break? Would the sledge hammer I used on the u-joints be any help?
If you are talking about the cover over the end of a Model 20 rear axle, you get it off by getting a good grip on it, now that you've done
that twist it and pull it. If it hasn't been off before, good luck, you may be cutting it off.

That will help to deform and loosen the cap. Leave the sledge hammer alone until you get a D8 Dozer to work on. Jeeps usually require a little more finesse.
