I usually to all my wheel
swaps underwater but have removed stubborn ones on the hard
. 90% of the time marinas
will heat press them on making them damn near impossible to get off. If you have a NiBro wheel
DO NOT USE HEAT! It will only braze it on the shaft making it that much more difficult. DON NOT use hammers or anything besides a puller, IF you must use impacting force only hit the puller itself. Ive changed up to a 72 inch wheel and know they can be a nightmare. To SWW who mentioned needing a haulout, thats why marinas
hate me, I change wheels and shafts in water
for alot less that a haulout..
