Any tips on removing the spacers from the front axel on a J120?

Appear frozen/rusted on, need to replace the tyre.

Hi Frank,

The central axle is continuous through the wheel so in theory, if you place the wheel assembly on something that supports the spacer but not the axle then you can drive or press it out.  Wouldn't hurt to hit it with some penetrating lube beforehand too.  A bit of heat from a little burner or similar (carefully applied of course) might help break it loose too.

Regards,

Doug.
