Pasture Dream Clipper Brush Hog - Remove Blades

Iím having trouble removing the blade on an old brush hog. The mower is a 5 ft Pasture Dream Clipper made by Taylor Machine Works. Iíd be afraid to guess how old it is, I bought it used 20 years ago and it looked very old then. The blade bar has a sleeve on top that fits on the shaft that comes out of the gear box. A heavy bolt goes up through the bottom of the blade bar into the shaft. Iíve never had the blade bar off but I assume there is either a key way or splines to keep the sleeve/blade bar from turning on the drive shaft. While under the deck to sharpen the blades I noticed a crack in the sleeve which Iím hoping can be repaired by welding. I can get a socket on the bolt that goes up through the bade bar, but it will not budge, even when using a cheater bar. Iím assuming the bolt is right hand threads, but maybe they are left handed. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

Some of these blade bolts are left handed. Clean up the top of the bolt and look to see if it is stamped with an "L" in the end. If you can't see anything clean the treads sticking above the nut and see which way the tread pitch is angled. To get the blade mount off of the gear case. You will need a puller. They usually are on a taper. Once you get it off I would not just weld it. I would "V" it out and weld it. THEN I would grind it smooth and take a piece of thick walled pipe that will just fit over it. If you can't find any pipe take a wide flat bar, heat it and form it to fit the hub. This will give it extra support. These mounts take a beating when you hit thins like stumps or rocks. You don't want it to come lose. I have seen several cut the top of the cutter just like a can opener.
