Clunk in rear wheel?

I traded for a 1950 WD the man that I got it from said it was ready to go to the field. Well I Fixed a lot of problems on the tractor. I went to hook to the hay rake and went to make a turn and had a loud clunk sound in the rear wheel as I eased back to the barn the clunk noise happened 4 more times. I jacked the tractor up the wheel cocked in at the bottom and would clunk when turned. The axle would move in and out about a 1/4 + inches and wobble up and down. If you shoved in on the wheel and turned no clunk. What is wrong? How do I get the axle out? Is this going to cost a lot to fix? I have a lot of money in this tractor! Thanks!

I suspect a bad rear axle bearing. There is a nut inside the bearing cap (inner side of tractor). Then remove the bottom cover. Hard part getting the axle out is reaching up inside and removing the snap rings that hold the gear on the axle.

Do you have power-shift/spin-out rims on the rear wheels. Clunking is very common if all the eccentrics on all 4 rails are not tight. Check them first. They may be rusted if not used in a while. Spray some PB Blaster in them before trying to tighten/loosen. They can be disassembled by removing the snap rings allowing you to really clean them up and put some never-seize on them. Some have suggested throwing really bad ones into a hot fire to free them up. I've done a couple by heating with a torch.

Also some run-out would not be uncommon for spin out rims.

If this is not the issue and you think you have a bad bearing in the final drive, I'd just find a good whole final drive unit from a parts tractor or salvage yard and swap the whole thing rather than tear apart the final drive. Mike
