Hi, i have a 4840 massey Ferguson tractor which has blown the oil seal on the LH rear halfshaft. I tried to get the wheel off today to start the repair job but can't get it to budge off the taper.
I have removed the four bolts holding the wheel onto the hub and tightened two of the bolts into the removal holes but the wheel won't pop off the tapered hub.
What can i try next ?
How tight do i dare tighten these two bolts without possibly stripping the threads in the wheel centre ?
Any advice appreciated thank you.
David.

Success !
Drove around in circles for a few minutes then managed to get half a turn on the 2 bolts, drove her back in the shed then got more turns on the bolts until the wheel was off.
There is a few mm of lift at the end of the axle now that the wheel is off so i guess the bearing is gone as you say Onion Farmer.
Thank you for the replies.
I will update you on my progress.
