GARGH.  Can’t get it loose.  Cheap air hammer wasn’t enough to drive the pickle fork in, picking up a larger one tomorrow.  The money pit continues to nom.

Well, I was hoping to not replace them, but they really did need replacement. When the wheel fell and was caught by one of the brake lines, damaging the already very aged part, I decided I best do it.

Good news is I got a great deal due to mfg closeout from one of RockAuto’s suppliers.
