can someone please shed some advice. I have an old go kart bought it early this noting. It needs new tires and rims. After I removed the nut and washer there is a key I'm guessing that it's to turn the wheels with the axle and not let the axle slip inside of wheel. My wheel was already bent bad so I tried hitting it with a 3 pound sledge hammer also put heat to It and also used liquid wrench. None has helped even budge the wheel off the axle. Am I going about it all wrong?
