Could you please tell me how to remove a rear axle off of a 185. I have removed the snap ring and cap screw off of the rear axle but still cannot get it to pull out. Any help would be appreciated.

Remove the cap screws , cover etc, wiggle, jiggle, and pull the axle out , may have to use a bar to bump it ; THEY ARE NOT THE SAME AS AN XT ; just use the same shims etc in the same spots should be good to go

I've read and followed those steps and the axle seems loose but will not come out. Thanks for replying.

The manual says to support the bull bear and bump the axle out after removing the cap screw, snap ring, pinned washer, lockwasher and shims.
Sounds simple doesn't it?. It's never that easy.

if it is like a 190xt, first of all you need a shop manual. you have to torque bolt and preload bearings. anyhow

this is how you do it (if it's like a 190xt)
1. take the rear rocker arm housing off the tractor. (first drain fluids in transmission and final drives) 2. remove the metsl half moon do-hickey from both sides (they cover the end of the axles) 3. remove bolt and washer from axle you want to take out.
4. on the outside end of the axle remove the 4 bolts 5. go back into the inside of the tractor with a jack of some sort and start jacking the axle out of the axle housing.

I don't know what the torques are for the 185 or the preload of the bearing.

It is not like a 190XT, it has a different final drive than the 190 and above. I have a manuel at home and if I remember I will look it up for the 185.

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]
