removing axle

I am trying to remove my axle on my 61 chevy
I got the drivers side off by taking the 4 back bolts off and used a sliding
slam hammer that I rented from Autozone. Came off with just a few slams
The passenger side will not budge. Is there something different on the pass
side? Can I put heat on it where the bearing race sits?

Tired of slamming

Marcus

Nope....Same deal on both sides....its just stuck..........I guess a little heat wouldn't hurt as long as you are replacing the bearing and seal anyways......are you?

i was not planing on replacing the seals but if I heat it up I most likely will mess up the seals. I'm pulling the axle so I can replace the gasket on the deferential case which was leaking.

I usually attach a chain to 2 studs & run it through a spare rim connected with a bolt/washers/nut and snatch works way better than dent puller/slide hammer.

i drilled a small hole it the cover and put penitrating oil on it and let it set over night. Today I placed a 25 lb. barbell weight on the slam hammer and beat the H?"** out of it and it never budge.
I only have a little torch that one would use on plumbing and don't think that is not enough heat. I will let it soak some more and if that does not work I have to call a bud to bring in his torch.

This is getting old
