Ahh rust, the favorite adhesive in the east to stick parts together with.

Bigger hammer, chisel to open the crack between the bearing and backing
plate, tap on the bearing, since it is already bad....  wiggle, stand on
head, etc.

Never had one NOT come apart, just some required more force.

Newby here, so be kind....


I have a 63 CVT that has a bad left rear bearing.  I have a new (to me)
axle and bearing to change out.  The issue is, I have taken the 4 nuts
and washers off that should allow the bearing plate and axle to separate
from the brake backplate.  It seems to be really frozen to the back


Any ideas other than a bigger BFH?
