Thanks Tony.  That would look good with rear duals, bolt right on ....  I have a '39 one ton pickup and a '40 one ton panel in the garage.

Too many Dodges and Dodge-powered things...

I sell several 5 gallon pails of RustBlast every year to guys with stuck motors and every one of them said the motor was freed up after soaking over night in a barrel.


Chopped Liver, I've got my own rope thank you very much.

Tony, that is a nice Dodge, I didn't know you had that one. I was thinking you had a Power Wagon. I always liked those 1/2 tons.

I have the ::baby: 25 ton model ;and there built hell fer stought
BTW jeff glad ya got the hubs off

It is a Dake and hell for stout it is. For light work it's a little slow so I set up an electric hydraulic pump and control valve on it which is good for 20 tons. After that I have to use the jack handle.

What's the welding truck Tony, looks a bit like a Dodge 1 ton or Power Wagon with a stake bed on it ?

I am now a firm believer in Rustblast. My hub on the front right rear wouldn't budge the other day, but after soaking it in Rustblast for a few hours yesterday it came right off with my puller. However the left front rear is being much more stubborn, but after more Rustblast treatment and Tony's method of using the axle as a puller I have moved the outer bearing to the end of the spindle. It is still tight but I ran out of time and tooling today. I should have it off tomorrow with no problem.  Thanks for all the help and suggestions.



I always keep a few extra tools under my 50 ton press.

Gordon you have a good eye. It's a '42 Dodge G505 WC 12.

I converted it into a farm truck with a stake body dump, power steering, power brakes and a Chevy 235 in '73. The guy I bought it from hauled milk cans with it from '48 to '65.

Hayseed, I'm sure it will come off with a puller, I just figured the RustBlast couldn't hurt. I hate to use a torch unless I have too.

Tired Iron, my front differential was full of water and no oil. The only oil I found in it was on the input shaft in the power divider, after I removed the gears from it. It was the one with the stuck wheel bearings. My rear differential had about 3 quarts of water before oil came out. That differential looks pretty good but I have not disassembled it yet. The r/h wheel bearings on this one may be re-useable, but the left are not.

The inner bearing is stuck on the spindle, I'm soaking it in RustBlast and will deal with it later. It is junk anyway -

Jeff, I'd be too impatient to use Eddy's wonder GOO....:w00t::w00t:

That's a Prime candidate for Wayne's Blue Spanner...
Wayne or I would have that Bearing  on the shop floor in a heartbeat......:D:D

Jeff let me ask you this in reading the post, was there any oil in the differential or just water. The reason I ask is I have a old Autocar and when i went to drain the oil about 2 gallons of water came out then black oil. I am hoping that I will not run into the situation happened to you.

One last update. As I mentioned, using Tony's method of using the axle as a puller I was able to pull the outer bearing all the way to the end of the spindle. I used the existing studs, and found that spindle nuts made great spacers between the axle and the end of the spindle. When the axle bottomed out on the hub I would disassemble it and add another spacer. It was slow going, but I only had to do this a couple of times before  the outer bearing was flush to the end of the spindle.  At this point the bearing was still tight, so I found a socket that would fit up against the spindle (and was smaller than the bearing) and used my home made puller to get the hub the rest of the way off. I'm glad this ordeal is over, there is plenty of clean up work to do now. I'll start posting more in the Members Trucks section again.

By the way, even though I bent the crap out of both the pullers I made, my crummy looking welds held just fine. NASA would call this a "partial success".

I got tired of straightening my puller on the press. It seemed to work ok like this.
