    I'm replacing my brakes on a 3/4 ton 10 bolt. I have the rotor and everything off of the side I'm working on. I'm replacing the rotors, calipers and pads. My problem is I think the old rotor is seized ot the hub. When I say hub I mean the housing that the locking hubs sit in. I have to sepeate the two so I can install new rotors. Does anyone know an easy way of seperating them? Is there a trick to it that I don't know which might mean it's not seized together? BTW if heat is required I only have a little propane torch. I've tried using a chisel and hammer to seperate the two but no luch there.

    BFH! heheh. On my 60 the hub and rotor are held together by the wheel studs. i had to knock them all out and the hub was also a press fit in to the rotor.

    I'm not positive, but I think it is the same on your 10 bolt.

    A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

    Yea, like the other guy said you should just be able to beat the wheels studs out and the hub will separate from the rotor. Be sure to put a spare lugnut on the top half of each stud before you start hitting it so you don't mushroom the top.

    I thought this might be the case but I wanted to ask first.
