Tried to get one of the rear axle housings off my Case V today since I've got to get into the brake assembly inside. Got all the big bolts (8) off holding the housing to the tranny/differential housing. Then removed the outer bearing retainer plate on the outside end of the housing. There's a seal in there too. My manual says the whole housing should slide right off but I get about 1/4" then I can't get any further. I think (maybe) one of the bearing shells is not moving or will only move so far and unable to move any further. I assume the outer shell is the one putting the preload on the inner bearing is that right? I'm not even sure which one is stuck if this is in fact the problem. Should this thing slide right off or is this a normal problem in removing such a housing? Is anything special supposed to be done to the brake or it's linkages before this whole thing slides off? In any event, I'd sure appreciate it if someone that has gone through this (Maybe Mike from Canada) could contact me here or at my home email (I've removed the 'hide' on my email link). I could sure use some help and advice.

yeesh. ive never taken the final drive/rear axle housing off my VAC (yet) but i do know that the two are different by looking @ it. im just going to work on logic.

1) try working the clutch while trying to split the parts. it may be the only thing thats letting you get a 1/4" of movement is the gear lash. free up the gearbox and it may help.

2) if 1) doesnt work, lift the rear wheels off the ground and fiddle on that end instead.

3) you may be right that the seal on the inside is keeping the bearing from passing through. have you ever removed inner wheel bearings from front rotors? without damaging the seals? its easy. removing the rear end from your V? not so easy. you may have to employ the BFI method for removing it. if the seal gets damaged, oh well.

i know about as much as you do here. wish i were right beside you to learn as you go.

i've unlocked my e-mail too. ping me and lets exchange phone #s or something. theres got to be a better way to skin this cat.
