Beating on it is rough on the wheel bearings. Acty oxy torch on face of rotor usually makes it easy to pop off. If you don't have acty & oxy get the rotor really hot with propane torch then douse with cold water this will work sometimes. The problem with propane is it takes to long to get the rotor hot and a lot of heat gets transferred to the hub and bearing. usually wont hurt it because they are made for high heat.

Use bolts you purchase for this job in the caliper bracket to push the rotor off

it takes time and patience - but this saves the hub bearings from the sledge beater

My Tracker had two threaded holes in the rotor near the hub that you could thread bolts through to push the rotor off. Pretty slick.

never fail way to break loose, take air chisel gun with large head flat hammer tip, PB blast around center hole, and studs.. and start pounding on it between the studs, and all around the hat(hub flange area), and on the circumference edge of hat section its noisy as all heck.. but after a few minutes them rust mites will let go of each others hands.

I've freed them up by placing a pinch or pry bar between the back of the rotor and the knuckle. Pops right off!
