I've been working on getting the locks freed up fpr the spin out wheels for my WD. Lots of penetrating oil and a broken breaker bar. As to the size of the wheel locks, did AC have a special wrench for these things? Bigger than 3/4" and tapered. What have you guys been using on these? Tim

It"s also possable to snap the head off the adjuster. I have broken both the 3/4 drive socket and the eccentric head. If they are real stuck take the wheel and lay donw on the ground. take out all the bolts that hold the eccentrics to the wheel. then beat the wheel out of the center. I use an 8 pound sledge hammer. they will come off this way.

You can make 3/4" work, 25/32" is the correct size. The best way that I have found is to use the strongest impact that I have and lots of penetrating oil. A rosebud tip on a torch helps. I have also done it with a 5 foot sliding t-bar in 1 inch drive with two guys- this one I guarentee to work or break the socket, I have done both!

I just did this when I replaced the rear rim on my WD. Took using a hot wrench, long 1/2 drive breaker bar with a 3/4 socket and cheater to get them loose. Probally the first time since set at the factory they had been moved. They work well now.

AC did have a special wrench for them. I just use a 3/4" wrench on mine. Sometimes they have many coats of paint on them and the socket doesn't want to go on. This said, you would do bett to take the wheels off of the tractor, remove all bolts, lay the wheel down and with a sledge hammer, beat the centers out of the wheel. Then tap the pin back and forth until they loosen up. You can also remove the C clip and drive the pin out and clean the pin. then reassemble. Bob
