I am new at this. We just pickup a 1975 jeep that we are starting a groundup restoration. I have already removed the body, engine and now I am removing the suspension. I am trying to remove the rear axle from the differential to check the bearings etc...(Dana44). I have the 6 bolts off the back plate. The flange is solid. I tried a slide hammer (rented from the local auto parts store) to loosen the axle shaft but it wont grab behind the flange. Should the axle pull right out or is there a pin somewhere that I am missing?
