74 CJ5 D30 wheel bearings-how to
I just bought a 74 CJ5 258 w/drum brakes (my first jeep) and I'm trying to go through it and perform all routine maintenance.
I can't for the life of me figure out how to remove the front wheel bearing to repack them.
I have 3 different repair manuals (Clymers, Chiltons, and Haynes), and none of them show a diagram that matches what I have.
From what I can tell, it's a Dana (30?) axle (looks very similar to the Dana axle I have on my 3/4 ton GMC) with a Warn manually locking hub.
When I remove the hub, the first thing I get to looks like a washer with a screw driver sized slot in it. I can't figure out how to remove that thing. I've tried tapping on it in both directions (left/right) and it doesn't move. Behind it is some type of bearing (with four small round holes in it) and behind that is the lock nut.
Anyone know how to get this thing off?
