Rear axle push out bolts
« on: July 27, 2020, 11:12:37 PM »
Anyone know the size and thread count on the two small bolts used to push the rear axle flange away from the hub? Mine were snapped off 70 years ago. I don’t want to drill them out until I know thread / size. Thanks.

You can try to get them out with a speed out extractor. I had some success with those on different bolts lately. Not sure what size and thread count these are...  They are mentioned in TM9-1710C but it doesn't give any details on the bolts itself..
