    And put a block of wood on the hub when you are hitting it. You don't want to mangle your hub. At least if you plan to use it again.:laugh:

    I'd lay a hurtin on the drum itself...smack all around the hub and the hub should eventually drop out.

    Yep..

    Put a small block of wood under the whole set up, with the drum wheel mounting surface, pointed up. The back of the hub, where the dust seal is, should be sitting on the block, and the drum should be OFF the floor. The block will need to be smaller than the diameter of the drum, so that the drum has space/room to travel down.

    Now, beat the buh-jeezers out of the drum with a shop hammer of your choice... don't stop until the drum is ON the floor. :D

    If it still does not want to seperate all the way .. add too, or get a taller block.

    I always enjoy a project when "Hit it with the BFH" is the answer.
