I always thought it was a pretty easy job to do ? Of coarse I was a lot younger on the last one I did too ! LOL.
Sure a lot easier then getting into the brakes on a new generation tractor.
I would chain bind a 4x4 to the underside of the front frame and put jackstands under the ends to hold it from tipping over sideways. I would then block the back up on the drawbar frame. If your wheel hubs move your home free. Get the wheels and hubs off then a large floor jack will support the axle housings for removal. They are light enough to remove by hand though. I remove both sides at the same time this way. There is the possibility your tractor has some shim washers in near the diff. used to control side play of the diff. These could fall off upon axle removal. Not even a bad idea to remove the rear cover and check and adjust the diff. side play too.
