Wc bell housing removal 36 rears?

I am trying to put a new bell housing in my unstyled WC. I can not figure out how to get the old one out. Can anyone help me? I have already pulled the motor out for an overhaul so I thought that this would be a piece of cake. Do I need to take off one side of the frame? Do I need to slide it out of the front or the rear?

Also, I understand that some WCs might have come with 36 " rear rims. Does anyone know if this is true and if so, where can I find some?

WC, The early "WC's" with round spoke or pressed steel wheels were 24", then they changed to cast iron wheel centers and those had 28" and the Highcrops had 36" and you will need to go to LA. to find some or look around as there has been quite a few brought up north.

When you remove a frame rail you may have trouble with the bolts in the front pedestal.They tend to freeze in place and want to break off instead of coming out.When you get the frame rail off you'll have to unbolt the trans,there's a stud with a nut on it inside the bell-housing that has to be removed before the trans can be separated.My best suggestion to you would be get a manual, IT manuals are a great help. WC's came out with 24 inch rears,then went to 28.There are high-crops around but I don't know what size rims they had.

I think you will find it easier to remove the bell housing if you remove a frame rail. Be sure to support the tractor as one frame rail won't hold it up. WCs came with 26 in. rims, then when the went from spokes to solid wheel they changed to 28, one with 36 would be a high clearence model and I am not sure if they made them, maybe someone else knows.

Complete removal is not necessary, just loosen bolts and spread the rails. However, supporting from underneath is a good idea, no matter which plan you follow, even though much of the weight is already gone with removal of the steering assembly and engine.
