First the failures: I made a puller out of square tubing with a keyway slot consisting of a 1/2" hole and a 3/4" hole. I filed out the material between with the resulting opening looking like a key opening for a skeleton key. Two 1/2"-20 bolts were threaded though the ends of the tubing to press against the axle flange. This worked on the right side pin, but tore the head most of the way off the left side pin. Next the left side pin was drilled and tapped 3/8"-16. Ran a 6" piece of hardware store threaded rod through a 3/4" deep well socket. Added a few washers, then a long coupling nut. The cheap theaded rod broke, but I was able to get the broken piece out of the pin. Bought some grade 8 threaded rod. It held out a long time, but eventually failed and didn't budge the pin. Tried the suggested method of loosening all the axle flange bolts and jacking up the tractor by the axle. Since the pin was not stuck in the outer hole, this did nothing. (The pin would have to be stuck in both the outer and inner holes for this to accomplish anything!). What finally worked was to use a long piece of grade 8 threaded rod, through the deep well socket with a washer and nut tightened to near the breaking point. On the end of the long threaed rod, I placed an old 3 lb. hammer head, some large washers and a nut. Repeated slide-hammering with occasional tightening of the nut on the socket got it out, but not without a helluva fight. My hand is tremoring as I write this!

I use a 3/8-24 thread, leaves more of the bolt or stud as the threads are not as deep. Have not had problems with it not working so far.

I had to remove the ones on both sides, last fall. and I used a lot of kroil,time,(about 2 wks),and tremendous amount of labor. finally welded a 3/4" craftsman boxend wrench to the end of each pin, and twisted them loose, after using a hammer and heavy punch on the ends of the pins to shock them, and allow the Kroil work its way in there. I dont know if it will help next time or not, but I used that thick silver anti sieeze on the new pins that replaced the old ones.

I have one on the right side of my WD just waiting for your expertise. This is one of my winter jobs, I hope I have time to get to it.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
