    I have a 2010 Hustler 60" super Z 31hp kawi.
    Once I have the 1 3/4" nut off the hub assembly What is my next step to remove the hub? I have two broken wheel studs. I need helps ASAP!

    You nee to have a puller for this, do not under any circumstance use heat of any sort, this will destroy the seal in the wheel motor and may cause more damage to the wheel motor.

    The hub is fixed now. What a PITA. Trip to autoparts store to rent hub puller.
    Then another trip to buy new studs.

    They are on there really good.
    Make sure you torque the nut back to 295 ft. lbs.
    If its not torqued right then you will likely cause wheel motor shaft damage and replacing the wheel motor isn’t cheap.
