It finally came off. I took an even bigger hammer and with a few more whacks, it came off. Big problem though! Work came to a halt on friday afternoon because when I was bolting on the caliper, the sleeve that the bolt bolts in on the bracket or mount stripped out. It looks like it has been machined out and is all nice and shiney. Nobody has it and I guess I have to check w/ford and see if I can get it. So I'm at a stand still until at least mon. morning. To add insult to injury, the hole that you use to screw the abs sensor to the spindle was covered up, so I had to waste time fixing that. For such an easy project, it sure is one thing after another.
