    Hey guys, I need some help trying to move the old girl. Its time to move the car to my house. The wheels have always been locked since I bought it. Ive broke the front ones loose. But i cant break the rear wheels loose. Ive been lubing inside the hub with marvel mystery oil for weeks. Ive got the hubs to move, but only backwards. I can make them move foward by prying in a a prybar between the lug nuts and waming it with a big hamer. I can do full rotations inch by inch with hammer blows but thats it. 20181201_160021.jpg

    I have no key, the gear selctor only goes into the position its in plus 3 more. The pictures show in what gear its (supposedly) in 20181201_191733.jpg 20181201_191739.jpg 20181201_191744.jpg 20181201_191748.jpg

    That drum looks like it even has the slot to get to the adjuster on the outside of the drum. You say you can move the drum in one direction . Just move it to the 6 O'clock position . and wind the adjuster back in .

    Then remove the cotter pin and axle nut and if still necessary use the proper hub puller
