nosecone- wont come off

Post by zabo on Thu Mar 26, 2009 9:22 pm

m trying to remove the nose cone from a 64 swingaxle.

I took all the bolts off and the nosecone will lift about 1/2" but i cant get it all the way off.
wht could it be hanging up on? Is there a trick to this?

Did you try shifting? in, out, rotate. Been a while, but it seems like there's a sweet spot that the hockey stick needs to be in, for the cone to come off.

It's been a while, and this is my knee jerk reaction, I may be wrong.
