I need to replace front axle,it cracked this morning while I was moving some dirt using the davis front end loader. I am wondering if I am going to have to remove the loader or if there is enough room to remove and replace the axle?I have manuals and have researched the part through Y/T,they have one in stock. Thanks for your help!

I did one for a neighbor right after Christmas. His has a manure loader with a trip bucket, much lighter than a Davis loader like I have on my 35. I used a big floor jack under the front end casting to hold it up and with the loader there it was not really in the way, just a bit less convenient. It took me several hours to get the old pivot pin out as it was really stuck, had to cut it out in pieces and then grind through the walls of the pin where it passed through the casting. Once I finally got it out the axle was an easy swap. The new axle I got from eBay was much heavier than the old one, about 50% more weight, and visibly a lot thicker. I am not concerned about it breaking and he is not either, guess we will see what happens. Zach

Well, don't depend on old wooden sawhorses. Make the engine and loader frame safe and you should be fine.

Hope YT Chinese cast iron is cheaper and better quality than an old original one on fleabay.

I intend to keep the original axle, as it may be repairable.

Okay. To repair the front axle back yard style you need an old oven with the broiler working. Obtain diamond plate steel, about 3/8 thickness. Cut into shape to fit into rear of front axle recesses. Punch a hole in both sides of the oven. Insert axle heat to highest temp possible. Weld with nickel rod. Allow to drop 100 degrees in temp per hour. This is possibly best done with a virgin axle as I had done by a buddy. Precracked is preweakened. Chinese cast iron is a lot more porous. Porosity tends to leak to weakness.

Bruce, thanks for response. I did not mean to start a sidetrack. I will replace front axle with a new one. I want to have tractor back up and running.I have a hard time throwing all things away, so I will see about repairing old axle.(I can always bring in a load to metal recycling place)I was more asking about removing loader to get access to front axle, but after spending some time last night,it seems possible,that will be my first plan. Plans can change!
