    Depends. Sometimes there is a slight taper cut into the shafts. This would require a puller. Even without the taper, they are a bitch to get off. Eventually the shaft will get a super slight twist that makes it a nightmare to get the cups off. With the plunging shafts on the EBK, the carrier takes a serious beating compared to a setup with an axle that can twist. A good puller should solve this issue in less than 5 minutes but I have a feeling the splines won't look too pretty.

    O'Reilly has a decent puller set you can borrow if you don't have one big enough. A good puller is a good tool to invest in though.

    There is a bolt that goes from one side to the other.
    I'm not going to disturb it, the bearings do not feel bad. Just put it back together and keep an eye on it.

    I have a feeling this car has not been run too much, I think the dirt tires may be the original ones that were in the EBK thread, it's the car with the 2 HIDs mounted on the front of the cage. The sand tires were bought by the guy I got the car from, he said he had not run it much. Also, looking at the leading edge of the A arms, I don't see any rock chips like I would expect to see if it were raced, no apparent damage like rock chips or dents to the skid plate either.

    You should have posted a pic of both sides.

    I'd say that it's a threaded nipple in the splined shaft and that it most likely doesn't go all the way through to the other side.

    Flyer, it doesn't have a Star because it's not running the CV's just the cups. The welded yoke flange is bolted to the CV cup.

    Kuma, get a puller or make one just to keep in your tool box when your out in the dirt. Don't use the Harbor Freight puller, they have a tendency to break.
    If you don't have a welder then I should have enough scrap in my shop to make you one, no charge
    Your close enough that it would be cheap to just ship it to you it you probably wouldn't get it till Wed. Thurs.
    I'll touch base with you tomorrow.

    Aside from that, how do you like the performance with the 750cc? Does it feel like it's just enough engine or like it needs more hp?

    I've made pullers like this, but a little easier, quicker, stronger. Use TWO pieces of flat bar, parallel, across the face of "CV" cup, perpendicular to the two cup bolts that are across from each other (flat face of the flat bar against each side of the cup bolts). Space them 5/8" apart and weld a tight, thick 5/8" washer in the middle to each of the flat bars. Weld a 5/8" nut to the washer (I like to use fine thread nut/bolt). You don't have to weld the nut on if you use a wrench to keep it from turning while pulling. Now you have slotted puller. Use good washers and longer bolts (bolts need to be as long as the flat bar is wide plus enough to thread into the cups plus washers) and bolt the puller to the "CV" cup, thread in the all thread bolt in the center and pull. No precision measuring or cutting, throw it together in 15 min. Somewhat universal for multiple pulling jobs.
