Bull Gear/Axle Shaft Removal - Model C

Welcome Guest, Log in or Register

Report to Moderator

I've removed the grease cap, the 7/8" hex bolt in the end of the shaft, and backed-off the large bull gear nut.

How do I get the shaft out?

I've already tried the 4lb maul. Also, tried heat on the inner race of the inboard bearing. I don't see any corrosion.

Is there someting else that needs to be removed?

Informed opinions/suggestions appreciated!

A press is the way to go. Anything else shows disrespect for precision machinery. Be careful of placing a jack between the housings. You may end up breaking the housings. Maybe they can take it, but I wouldn't risk it if I didn't know.

i have removed several of them with a 1 inch brass rod and a 5 pound hammer. set the punch on the inboard end of the shaft where you took out the 5/8 NF bolt. hit it hard. hold the punch with vice grips if you think your fingers are too close. you are driving the shaft thru the small bearing. the big bearing on the other end will stay on the shaft, but you are pushing the outer seal out of the housing also. make sure the bull nut is backed off several turns to start with, then more as the shaft moves. dont be afraid to hit it hard as long as you have the brass punch. the punch is softer and will deform before the axle.

The easyest way is shown in the picture below, but I am sure this is not what you was planning on doing. Be careful with the hammer, the axle is soft enough that a miss que will cause you to need a different axle. The bearing on the inside where you are using a hammer is pressed on the axle. The best way for you to remove the axle on the tractor is to put blocks of some sort fron the opposit axle housing and place a bottle jack on the axle you are needing to press out. You will need a metal bar to place on the axle itself.
You could wrap a chain around the axle housing and the bottom of the jack, placing the jack on blocks as well.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
