I think I am loosing it
I am trying to remove the shitt# factory auto hubs and replace with manual hubs on my '94
I pulled the passenger side out no problem....a bit sticky, a few whacks...got it
I am now on the Drivers side and that SOB is all locked up or something
I know I have to remove this:
Road surface Asphalt Font Circle Automotive tire


I should be able to PULL that splined washer out, but its locked up tighter than a bull's ass in fly season
The shitty C-Clip, If I remember just kinda popped out when I was doing the other side
Road surface Asphalt Font Circle Automotive tire
Automotive tire Motor vehicle Wheel Tire Tread


I took the wheel bearing spanner nut behind it and I rotated it all the way IN to provide more 'rattle' for the washer....nothing
I bashed the shit out of it with a punch with the hope of loosening it up

I MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING HERE....any help great appreciated

Yo Para,
See Removal by Ford in 1996 Bronco Workshop Manual @
Locking Hubs, Automatic 1996 Bronco/F-Series

Elsewhere, from my notes, "
Clean any old grease or dirt from these parts and replace if signs of excessive wear are noted."

I think after all is said and done, the difference between 5 bolt auto hubs vs manual hubs is that you have to REMOVE 2 parts:

1) That odd little C-ring
2) The auto hub washer
