I cannot budge the axle out of the final drive...appears to be stuck for some (obviously) unknown reason. Figure it has never been out of the tractor before. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to bust it loose without busting it?LOL!!!

I had a lot of trouble getting mine apart, too.
Ended up making a special tool that mounts to the 1/2-13 tapped holes in the casting, and also mounts to the 5/8" bolts that hold the final drive on.
It has a stud much like that used on a gear puller.
Even with the screw real tight, it took some good whacks with a 2# hammer to get it apart.
Caution! move the snap-ring from the groove near the bull gear to the reduced diameter area on the axle shaft first.
I wanted to just replace the seals, but when I got it apart, saw that 1 bearing on each side was really bad, so replaced them as well.
Before I put it back together, I polished the bearing mount surfaces then used the hex head bolt to pull it back together. (Don't forget to put the seal in after the large bearing !....and, make sure the snap-ring and ring spacer are assembled along with the bull gear.)
Getting that snap-ring back on can be a bear.
If ya need more info, please email; I'd be gald to help out.

One other thing....there are thin shims under the large washer that serve to adjust bearing take up.
These must be kept with the side they came from.
Unless you're replacing the bearings, these shims should go right back in.
If replacing bearings, you'll have re-adjust for zero end-play.
