A Large Pain: My right side large tractor tire on my 1948 JD B needed to slide off 8 inches to
turn the cast wheel around.
Lots of PB Blaster all along the way.
Clean the splines off with a chisel to remove paint and rust.
Run a pull/strain chain from one slot to the opposite slot in the cast wheel.
Remove the hub retainer piece.
Put a Port-a-Power between this chain and the axle
Pump up plenty of strain between axle end and wheel hub.
Use an 8 lb sledge hammer and alternate whacks on the inside of the wheel 180 degrees apart.
Keep drenching the axle spline both sides of the cast wheel with PB Blaster and WD-40.
When you are exhausted and ready to quit it may have moved half the distance you want.
Good luck with your large PAIN.
