Emergency brake cleaning
« on: April 01, 2019, 04:39:19 PM »
Dear All,
I need to change the oil seal of the outgoing shaft on transfer box, as it's leaking into the emergency brake drum.
I have remove the 4 nuts but the rear shaft refuses to come off the drum's bolts. As I do not want to be hard on it, any recommendation to remove it. There's no rust at all.
Thanks in advance for your advise.

Hi Patrick,
If you have removed the 4 bolts, give the drive shaft a few good hits with a dead-blow-hammer.  It will pop right off.  Don't be shy.  It can take this kind of abuse.

You might need a puller to get the companion flange to release from the drum/transfer case.
