    Default 205gti press tonnage rear beam shaft change?

    Hi, to all those with experience of pushing the rear beam shafts out of the trailing arms, a 10 tonne press shows no sign of being able to shift the old shafts. I haven't tried heat yet but is 10t normally enough or does this operation require something heavier duty? Any special techniques required?
    Cheers, James.

    Well it took 10 tonnes, a blowtorch and a few hammer hits on the side under pressure. Possibly the original shafts...
