After just about killing myself dropping the differential out for a rebuild
('70 3500S), I have been unable to loosen the hinge pin assemblies to remove
the rear calipers from the differential. The large nuts/caps are frozen (at
the other end, the smaller caps came out easily). I've just about stripped
the heads, even with a tight spanner, trying to get them free. I know the
dam things are threaded from the 'exploded' diagram in my parts and repair
manuals. Any chance these things are reverse threaded.
Any help would be appreciated.
