When removing cone washers from the rear wheel of a 80, the FSM says hit the axle center with brass punch. Any ideas why not hit the studs like in the front?

Or what you *don't* see... wheel bearing grease.
I don't hit the studs (front or rear.) A brass hammer works well when struck against the side of the flange. Loosen the nuts but leave about 2 threads so the cone washers don't fly all over the garage. "You could lose an eye doing that." :G
