  1. SUCCESS!!!! lug nut on, handy man jack between spring pack and back of lug nut. Left side, gain an 1/8. Right side gain an 1/8. Repeat 20-30 times each side. eventually i was gaining like a 1/4 to 1/2 inch. ? Thanks again for the help you guys. I'll have to start a brake thread next. ha
  2. It moved a little!! I think I can start to slowly get it. it seemed like it released anyway. Thanks a bunch guys. Ill start a build thread on this soon.
  3. So pulled the axle/ bearing. Now just pull like ****?
  4. Thanks a bunch, oh yeah Idaho! We're down here in Homedale on the OR border and the Snake river. started on the axle last night. as soon as I get to the napa for the 3 1/4' Socket I'll see what happens. Ive been working on this truck like 15 min a month for 4+ years and this is all thats stopping me from a test drive.
  5. Great, thanks for the response, sorry though this is getting out of my experience zone. So if it won't slide off its the brake? I don't have the other side off. Thanks for the help. I appreciate it. I haven't been able to get it to turn even after draggging it down the road so I was just assuming it was the brake. You know about those assumptions though.
  6. I've got a stuck rear brake on this Cargostar 1610b 15x5 hydraulic system.It's been sitting for awhile. Couple of questions. Are there two adjusters to loosen the shoes or just one? And is there a release you have to hold up to loosen the adjuster. I can't get the bottom one to move and I'm not sure if it's rusted shut or not. Afraid to start going too crazy on it without loosening the shoes a bit. I've seen some cool gear puller type setup for getting drums off and thought that might work. Any advice out there? Thanks in advance.
