I got a 1970 F 250 Ranger. I had a wheel cylinder go out (leaking brake fluid). I got the tire off, and removed the axle cover and took out the axle. I am having an issue removing the LARGE nut holding on the bearings and drum. Is there a special tool for the nut removal? Here is a picture of my situation! Thanks.
Yes, there is a nut but behind that nut is a ring with locking tabs that are bent to the side of the nut to keep it from turning. Use a small chisel to bend (not cut) those tabs away from the nut. The nut will then come off. Then the ring with the tabs, then the other nut. http://fordification.com/tech/images...llFloating.jpg
