Rear wheel see picture

Postby zvacman » Mon Jun 07, 2010 9:19 pm



I read somewhere on here that the five sided part in the picture on my wheel is supposed to "come right off". Mine will move about 1/4" and stop. Am I doing something wrong. Do I need to pry it off? I alresdy tried to wiggle it off and it won,t budge. Any help?

Thanks, Z

I had quite the battle getting mine out of my 83 as well. It really does just slide in; but over time, seems to plug up with grundge.
I put a bit of penatrating oil at the point where the pin goes into the bushing. Try not to get too much on the rubber insulator around the bushing, as rubber and oil don't get along great. If you can work the flange up and down a little, with a little penatrant getting in, you should be able to get it to pull out eventually.

It does really just slide out (or should, when working correctly):

If it's bound up, there's likely some corrosion causing it - just work it back and forth and up and down, try adding some grease around the pins as you do it (I'm not sure how the rubber bushings will like penetrating oil). Once you do get it out, clean the pins up and grease them well before reinserting them. It's pretty important that this assembly be able to slide freely in and out of the wheel.

Wow, I didn't want to do it but I ended up having to use some rust buster spray. Luckily it was only on it for about two minutes and I was able to wipe it all off quickly. All of the gear teeth are pristine without any sign of wear. All things considered the project is going well, hopefully be back on the road the weekend after this. Waiting for tires now.
