Hi, I purchased the ap4253981 kit. I see the sealing washer on top of the nut. I saw in someone else's post that you say to cut the washer off with a chisel. I do not see a new sealing washer in the kit. The nut is frozen as well and I have it soaking. Several heavy blows with a hammer have not done anything but make it mad. My hub assembly is corroded pretty badly so just replacing the top Drive bell and seal are probably not an option. Any ideas?
ANSWER Hello Ryan. If the drive bell is removed, the hub in the kit R9900552 should lift off the transmission splines. It does not unscrew off of them. If it is stuck, you will need to cut it off, but be careful not to damage the transmission.
