    How the heck do get the rotor off the front axle? It is a 10 bolt original 6-lug.
    We have the locking hub removed and the manual says the rotor should be able to come off but the bearing seams to be in the way.

    Thanx

    after the hub comes off you have to remove the two locking spindle nuts then the bearings.

    you have to remove the spindle nuts. you should have 2, an innner and an outer. they make a special tool, but if your careful, you can get it off with a hammer and punch

    Got one nut off, it has 4 notches in it. It looks like the only thing left is the bearing.

    We knew we could count on you guys! Thanx. What looked like a bearing was a washer hiding the second nut! Thanx again

    Heat (knowing that there's grease in there which is flammable) or a hammer. If the bearing is rusted to the spindle or the like, the spindle surface may be shot and you may end up replacing the spindle as well.
