    Separating Hubs from Halfshafts . . .

    Need to remove hubs from their halfshafts . . . already buggared up a spare halfshaft trying to drift the two apart, and obviously don't want to damage the two I have left. Visited my local garage today to see if they could help but they politely declined as they know the job is a pig.

    Any ideas welcome please.

    Which car may be useful information.
    Its either you lay down and die or you get on with your shit till you do!!!!! No Other Way Around It. One or the other. Don't worry about being forgotten, you will. Rather worry about in how long it will take for you to be forgotten, bro.

    It's a 1963 Humber Sceptre - Axle, Halfshaft & hub design is exactly the same as most Fords of the period i.e Cortina, Escort, Corsair etc.

    cut them off with an angle grinder ??? or at least enough to weaken them to enable them to be smashed off and fitting new ones should not be too bad.

    They need to be sperated in a press. Put the nut on and bring up to the end of the tread when you do so you do not damage the thread

    Not correct, the Ford half shafts mentioned do not have the same design half shaft as the Humber Sceptre , Use a press as already mentioned,I have managed to seperate the hub using some heat ,then screw the nut on a good bit to protect the threads ,and drop the half shaft nut first onto an Anvil or similar.

    Mark the ones fogey is talking about have keyed tapered shaft end then the brake drum flange ( which a seperate drum sit on ) and is secured with a nut. Basically the same principal as a Pop axle except it is 2 pieces.

    I thought the the Cortina/Escort ones were the same but obviously not - the Sceptre shafts are as described above by brading
