pinion nut removal
Ok, this may be a stupid question, but here goes. I have a dana 44 out from from under the vehicle and sitting on jack stands, no wheels on it that I need to replace the pinion seal. So, this may be the dumb part, how do I get the pinion nut off. Everytime I try to torque on it, the rear drum just spins. Do I have to have wheels/brakes on, does it need to be installed in the vehicle, or is there some trick. I thought this was a no brainer but I am stupified and stumped [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img].
Thanks for you kind remarks and help
