would like to strip the AAU for a good cleaning. however the big nut does not want to come out. It slides back and forth and turns easily but will not come out. I soaked the whole thing in WD-40 and it appears to be in good shape...everything moves in and out OK. Before I use more force, is there a good reason that the nut will not slide out?

Then it must have an external thread for the puller side of its function? If the bolt has stripped its puller threads it will no longer act as a puller? Then how do I remove the AAU? It looks as thoug the previous owner has used a two jaw puller at one time because the large round plate is bent but not enough to damage the unit. What strips first, the threads in the body or the threads on the bolt? If it's just the bolt I can replace it and regain the extractor function. Who sells these bolts?
