Gonna have to drop it anyway... unless it's radically different than most others.

I always left those Ford loaders on, and simply rolled the back end out. It is far less work than completely removing that loader and THEN splitting it.

I've always rolled the back out too. The big rear tires give me good mechanical advantage and good control. That's assuming you tie the brake pedals up. I found out the hard way that the weight of the brake pedals once the return springs are removed will stop the rear end of a 5600 from rolling backwards. Scratched our heads for an hour trying to figure out what bound up so it wouldn't roll.

helps to have serveral folks when you do a roll back.. one on each side and one to watch the jacks as you eassssseeeeee it back... but i have done it by myself.

I suppose it might be easier on something with drum brakes. I never found it much fun trying to roll the back end against a set of planetaries on the double reduction axles.
Easier in this case would also depend on how much stuff you have to work around with the loader in place... and what gear you have to put the loader back on... I'd probably base my choice on how easily I thought I could get those two top 7/8" bolts out with my shoulders wedged into the loader...
I'm not necessarly disagreeing with either of you... but my preference has generally been to have the loader elsewhere when doing a split.

On 30 series tractors I also pull the entire steering pedestal off while others would fight around it.

I've split many a 4000, 5000, 6600, etc. with the 735 Ford loaders without a problem. With the bucket on the ground, the back frames drop down and clear the rear axles quite nicely. The only problem I've ever had is with really narrow rear tire tread settings, but then you're fighting that in a complete loader removal as well.

dropping it in place on some jack stands so it can be bolted right back up is 1 thing, and much easier than running over to the edge of the field, dropping it.. then going back to do the split, just so you can roll the front half forward instead of rolling the back half backward.

I just split a JD 2240 ( about the size of a 4000 ) to do a clutch and it has an 8' sweeper broom attachment on front. the subframe DOES hit the side of the tranny on each side.

I DID disconnect the bolts and leave it propped up, and then i rolled the back of the tractor waay..did the clutch and roleld it back and bolted everything together.

WAY WAY easier than dropping that front attachment completely so i had room to move forward.

I kinda see his loader setup working out the same way.

I'm just trying to think of the least amount of work for the OP..
