Working on 42'B, trying to remove the brake drums. Been trying to use a gear puller and not having any luck. Does anyone know of a trick that may help. THANKS in advance

There is a long puller with screw on feet that is the correct thing to use. Clean the shaft, soak well with penetrating oil, let set overnight. Remove the bull pinion cover, prop up so the pinion can drop out (note - put something soft under the pinion), then heat with the torch, just the hub around the shaft, not the shaft. Beat on the shaft with 5+ pound hammer and a piece of wood, aluminum, or brass on top of the shaft.

THe only danger is that the brake drum, instead of moving nicely, will break the final dive housing wall.

I had mine professionally removed - cost me $20.

Butch, Heat it up real good with a cutting torch and try what Steve recommended. If that doesn't work check the past posts and look for one by Dick L.. He presses them out. Had a picture showing how he did it. HTH

I take out the set screw in the drum, turn the drop box on its end with the splined shaft pointing up. set on a couple of 2x4 blocks. soak the end of the drum with WD 40, and spray into the setscrew hole. wait 10 minutes. I have a block of aluminum i lay on the shaft and hit HARD with a 5 pound hammer. usually about 10 whacks and it starts to move. about 30 and it comes off. always clean the shaft above the drum with a wire brush or rag so there is no excess crud in the path.
