Have removed the rear axle and differential from my GIbson D to repair the brake bands. It appears that I need to pull the brake drum off of the axle to get to the brake band.
I have a puller on the brake drum, but it is not moving.
Has anyone been successful in pulling the drum or remoinvg the axle? What is the proper method of doing this. I have the parts manual for this tractor but no repair manual. WOuld buy one if I could find one.

I just completley rebuilt the brake system on our Gibson D. you have to have a press and some time, and we also replace the bearing on the outer end of the axleshaft-housing. We picked the seal out of the bearing and then let all of the ball bearings fall out of the the cage and then axle will then come out of the housing. then press the brake drum off of the axle shaft. the local auto parts store will be able to get the replacement bearings for you as long as you take them the old ones to match up.

Brew is right on, I had to torch the bearing out of mine to get the axle out. Make sure your press is fastened down good. When I pressed mine off, it finally came loose when the press reached 45 tons of pressure and that is with heat applied to the casting. Press jumped clear off the floor about four inches and the noise I made. My wife thought I had to be dead. Wear ear plugs. GOOD LUCK

Most Gibsons had a cut down Chrysler rear end. If the axle has a large nut holding the drum on, you have to get a heavy-duty three legged drum puller. A good rental place or parts store should have one to rent. These are single-purpose pullers - be sure you get the proper one. To use it, take the nut off the end of the axle, turn it over, and put it back on the axle that way, turning it on until the edge of the nut is flush with the end of the axle. This keeps the end of the axle from flaring out when you tighten the puller. Put the three legs of the puller onto three of the five wheel nuts or studs, tighten them in place. Then screw the center bolt of the puller down tight - real tight. That's why there is a wing to put on that center bolt. Whack the heck out of it to tighten the center bolt, then hit the center bolt with a heavy hammer. One good whack and the hub and drum will pop loose. IMPORTANT! Everything must be very tight before you hit that center bolt! Once the drum comes off the axle, take off the puller, remove the axle nut, and the drum will fall off in your hands.
