I have alot of time on my hands now that i'm out of work so i'm tackling the rim replacement job finally!
This tire is extremely heavy, both are filled with calcium! Built a sled to load them on so i could drag them to my shop.

Built some stilts to bolt onto the axles, instead of using blocks, just not sure how long i'm gonna have to leave it without the tires and rims on.

What size wrench did you use to take the nuts off the ends of the axles? What kind of ft pound load do you apply and is there any preload?

Do the big gears stay in place or do they fall out?

How did you know you needed seals/bearings on the rear axles? were they leaking, growling or was there alot of wheel slop?
