obs centaurus dually spacers

This is my first post. I'm trying to remove the rear dually conversion spacers off my 95 f250 centaurus. Can't find a tool to remove the stud extensions that hold the spacers on. Can anybody help?

Bringing it back to life,:hijack:

Hey everyone been working on my truck today, well been working on it when my daughter is taking her naps. Anyways I put bigger tires on my dually 265 75 R16 and its been a real B**ch keeping the tires aired up so the side walls don't rub. I been looking at getting bigger spacers on the rear so I have the proper spacing so they don't. That's how I came across this thread from searching spacers. Doesn't seem anyone has answered this question but I think he meant to type Centurion. Does anyone on here know how to take off these spacers these are the same type that are on my truck. I have messaged him and no reply, I only ask because I am the type of person that will start beating this thing with a hammer to try and get it off.

My apologies for not replying. You're on the right track with the hammer. First soak the spacer around the studs and between the spacer and drum with lots of penetrating oil. PB Blaster or something like it. Then hit the spacer with a hammer. The spacer slides over the studs extensions. You will need an extra deep 1" socket. You can also remove them with a 1" 6point wrench (just can't torque them back on).

My truck is actually a Centaurus II which is a conversion by LCM. I believe the Centurion used the same spacers though. A lot of companies were doing conversions in the 90s. Most of them are out of business now, which makes working on them and finding parts a PITA.

Thats fine, thank you, i sat there scratching my head for an hour trying to figure out how to take it off. Hopefully they come off easy.

I would put 2 lug nuts back to back on a stud and tighten them against each other. Then unthread the stud via the nut. That is how you remove studs

Here is another style spacer
