So i know there are lots of discussions about stuck wheel bearings, but my problem might be a little worse. My hub is completely frozen onto the shaft, bearings and all. I've tried everything from pounding, heat, and a gear puller. but even better, my hub is also stuck onto my A-arm, neither of the spindles will seperate. I know everything is off that is supposed to be off, and the only thing i can remove is the A-arm from the quad. And lastly i cant just keep the old bearing in because my hub is damaged. I'm thinking the guy who owned it thought "i should JB weld them on so they don't fall off". Yes that's literally the only logical conclusion i can come to, its that stuck. if you have an idea, please help. Otherwise should i just bring it to a shop? if so what kind because i just rebuilt the top end and and dont want to spend tons of money. how much do you think this will cost? And i don't want to have to replace the A-arm because they are an expensive aftermarket pair. Also, the reason i have the theory about the previous owner; he has a record of forgetting things like washers on one head bolt, or sealing the head with silicone seal, or striping out the oil drain plug. Yea that guy is an idiot But anyways if you guys can give me some input, maybe you have had a similar problem or sum, at this point anything helps. Thank you (Its a 2008 polaris outlaw 450 with rath A-arms) not a ton of hours either
