Its the front outer I cant get the rotor off because the bearing is stuck and will not move I even tried heating with a torch

So did the bearing size up from allowing the wheel from spining?Did you get the flat washer off yet?

Flat washer is off the wheel still spins I need to change bearings but I think it got so hot the bearing welded itself to the spindle I need to get the bearing out so I can remove rotor to change bearings

If you chisel it off just becareful not to damage the spindle or you will have to change that also.
