Well, after combinations of various rachets, 1/2" breaker bar &  straining to 
the limit of my puny physical strength, I was able to "pull" a new  1-5/8" 
stud into place.  (I cut them down to the size I wanted)  1  down - 9 to go.  
However, I don't think I can do more than maybe 2 a day as  difficult as that 
was.  My compressor is puny so I couldn't use the impact,  but since it was VERY 
difficult to keep the axle from rotating against  breaker bar force, it was 
VERY physical.  (can't set the emergency brake  with the drum off)  I need 
another answer to this puzzle but now I know it  can be done w/o pulling the 
spindle/lug flange.  Any brilliant ideas out  there?
