I tried to adjust the rear tread today on my JD 60 and to no avail...the pinion bolt will not move, it seems to be rusted solid. I thought a little heat and Kroil would bust it loose. I broke my breaker bar trying and fear putting too much more on it, don't want to twist it off. Anyone got any ideas? I even tried my 1/2 impact...on the bright side my wedges are nice and loose.

I would just adjust the wheel to the position you want with the wedge removed, replace the wedge, tighten, then fill the void under the cork over the pinion with oil and put a good cork back in place.. The Pinion may have loosened by the time you need to move it next time..

Did you remove the cork plug and spray a pb and let it set a bit? Also I blunt a big chisel and smack the wedge with a big hammer, just don"t break the pinion.Russ

I have done many of those wheels. Jack up the wheel that you want to move. Turn it so the rack is up. On the back side remove the bolts from the lower wedge and take the wedge out and turn the wheel a half turn and slide it to the end of the axle or off. then you can get to it to free it up. Now, the wedge probably is stuck. To get it out I made a tool from a piece of pipe large enough to fit over the axle (3-3 1/2 in.) and long enough to reach from the end of the axle to the wedge and a couple of inches longer. Cut half of the circumference from one end of the pipe back about an inch and weld a piece of heavy steel plate to the other end. Slide it over the axle and hit it with a large sledge hammer until the wedge comes loose. This sounds complicated, but it's really simple. And you have the tool for the next time. it has worked every time for me.

I built the exact same tool some years ago, and if working alone, it"s handy to weld a small drilled flat stock or a couple of nuts, to hook a bungee cord to it for stability.

I've got both wedges loose, so I can just pull the whole wheel off once I get both wedges out? That doesn't sound too bad. I have pulled the cork plug out and am soaking it in Kroil/PB. We'll see what happens, thanks for the help!

You'll get the wheel off with just the bottom wedge out. The top one is made around the pinion, but will fall out once it's off the axle. chris
