Once you have the hub off, give inside a good wipe over with a rag to remove the grease. Look inside the wheel hub, (the part with the 5 wheel studs on it). You should see a large nut on the threaded part which is around the inner axle part that is sticking out. This nut has a locking washer behind it, and part of that washer is bent over the nut you can see. Poke around with a screwdriver till you find it, then tap it back straight with hammer and screwdriver. Now tap the nut cunterclockwise with the hammer and screwdriver till it comes off. Then remove the locking washer. There is a second nut behind the washer, and the outer wheel bearing is behind this. Tap the second nut clockwise to take up any play in the wheel bearing. Now flatten the washer out and install it again, then the second nut. Once tight, flatten the washer over each nut as it was before, and reassemble the auto hub.

The BIG nuts

When I replaced my hub seals, swivel pin bearings and wheel bearings I had to buy a 55mm 3/4" drive socket which I had to turn down to 71mm OD in the lathe to get it to fit inside the hub. The big nuts in my Rugger had been taken off/on by the hammer and chisel method and had been damaged to the point I couldn't get them to turn without the socket. My point being be gentil with hammering as it stretches the nut out of round and will cause binding which is what had happened to mine.
