I know this is a question about my daily but as I also know a few people use these axles under rods I figured I'd ask .
Went to change the shoes in my Ford P100's rear drums the other day and hit bit of a problem . On taking the wheel off I saw that it looks like the drum is secured by the half-shaft end cap so I undid the 5 bolts and popped the shaft out only to be confronted by a mahuusive nut sitting round the axle end , the bugger's at least a 2" double hex and none of my sockets would go near it (You'd need a pretty thin walled socket to get in there too) .
Figured I must be going wrong somewhere , surely you don't need to go through all this palava just to get the drum off right ? Had a look everywhere else and can't see any other way of the drum being secured . Gave everything a sound belting with a complane and the drum's having none of it , and yes I had the handbrake off before trying
So do I have to go out and buy a huge socket to do the job or am I missing something here ? All help/****-taking gratefully recieved
