If your diagnosis is correct and I can't find anyone nearby, I guess I'll have to tackle it myself. I did put on a new radiator last year so that part I can do. It's the axle removal that worries me.
Axle separation isn't as bad as you might think:
Raise front of tractor just enough to get front wheels barely off the ground and block it securely
Remove two large hex bolts on each side that hold outer axle extensions to center axle and lay axle extension to side with wheel, radius rod and steering linkage still attached
Remove 6 small hex bolts that hold axle support to engine and remove axle support with center axle section still attached.
At that point the pulley is fully exposed to your attack ;-)
