hit the steering knuckle where the ball joint shaft goes through it while u have the wedge/pickle fork inserted, u do this on the round side of the knuckle, this is what is called a "Morse Taper" hitting it distorts the hole a little and that lets the joint pop free. You need at least a 5 pound ball pen for this to work..

The front brake is a drum brake system. If you have removed the axle the drum should pull out of the hub and just hang from the brake cable.

Testimonial: "that was helpful but not the solution to my problem "how do i remove the front wheel" from the forks, but i appreciate the help thanks :)"
clamp the tool onto the ball joint and tighten it up till its tight then with a hammer strike the joint on the side a smart blow,,, watch your head as the joint will spring apart with some forse,,,,if your using the tool right that is!

SOURCE: How to remove the damper
Good evening, unfortunately this is something we run into all the time. There are a couple ways to go about it, first you can try soaking it every hour for a day with wd40 or something similar. You can also get a punch (or chisel) and sharply hit the metal bushing that is around the bolt to hopefully break it free from the rust that is holding the bolt to the bushing. Last effort is apply heat to the bolt as to not heat up the rubber around the bushing then put the nut back on the end til you even up with the threads and start tapping on it while turning. One of those top few steps is usually successful when we do them at the shop. Glad to help, and any more questions please ask.

Hello, W/D here. The short answer is yes, but the greatest caution must be taken.
MAKE SURE that the power is off the disposer before proceeding. Trip the breaker and test to be certain that there is no possibility of the disposer coming on. Also make sure that the wall switch is "OFF".
There several ways of attacking the problem.
With the power removed, hold the seal open (in the sink drain) and look inside for any debris. Usually, you can see whatever it is that is causing the noise. A flashlight is very helpful. Remove any debris that you can see with long needle nose pliers, and test. If you see debris, and don't have needle nosed pliers, try using reverse wound tape on a stick ti stick the debris and pull it out. You should never place your hands directly into the line of fire. You coulg get cut, hurt or stuck, and it just isn't worth chancing it. Usually, you will see a piece of plastic or bone. If you have kids, look for an xbox controller. Inspect very carefully. A sliver of glass is the hardest to detect, and makes a LOT of noise.
(If you have the allen wrench that came with the grinder, you can also rotate the motor and grinder blades from the bottom with the power off). These are available at Ace/Lowe's, etc.
Using the light, inspect the grinding portions exposed in the disposer. Look for damaged or missing parts. You can use a long screwdriver with your light to make sure that the grinder parts operate freely. Use the pliers to remove any freed-up debris.
Once the problem is isolated and corrected, fill a pot with water, and place it in the sink. Get a medium sized bowl of ice, and place it in the sink as well. Power the unit back up. Dump the ice into the drain (you may need to use a wooden spoon or similar to get the ice in), start the unit, and chase the ice with the water. The aim here is to use the ice to sweep around in the disposer, and then flush everything out with the water. If all of this doesn't solve the problem, it would be wisest to remove the disposer, and take it outside. Give it a good flushing over a pan and rotate the blades from the bottom as previously described. If all of this still results in noise, it may be that your disposer bearings are going out. Usually, though, they leak thru when this is the issue. My money is on debris, and hopefully, this will fix your problem.
Best regards, W/D
