Restoring a 62 Mobile Scout. It has a Rockford hitch. The crank mechanism that down through the hitch is rusty and I wish to wirebrush the post and the wheel. Cannot seem to get it apart so I can slide it out of the hole in the hitch. Took out the set screw on the sleeve above the wheel, used rust dissolve but it still will not separate. Any ideas?
If u have a torch of any kind heat it up till its to hot to touch then splash cold water on it. The rapid expansion and expansion from hot to cold will sometimes loosen things up. Good luck.
