Any help on how to separate the Disc Rotor from the Axle Hub on a '78 FJ40? I took the bolts off the back of the Rotor (that I assume hold it to the Hub) but I can't figure out how to separate it from the Hub. Appreciate the direction!

I think you need to press (hammer) out the wheel studs.


If I'm thinking correctly here.

Two bolts into rotor; then you need to hammer out the wheel studs, use a lug nut on the threads to protect the wheel studs. Use same lug nut as sacrificial lamb. . .

I can verify the 1976 models had pressed in lug studs. I think the 1975 and 1977 did, too.
