Hello I have a TO35 and would like to replace the 3pt arm because they are in rough shape.

The left hand nut came out fine. My problem is that the part 181229M5 5/8" Lower Link Shaft is just spinning in place, from online pictures there is a nut on the internal side you cannot get to without removing the trumpet housing is that true?

Would spot welding it temporarily be a good idea?

Thanks.

Why not cut thru the ball joint with a grinder. Then, you can get vise grips on the stub. The challenge will be tightening the nut inside, but I think i would try this before taking off a trumpet.

What an awesome suggestion! Thanks Ed!

I need to do work on the top cover soon, and I was planning on replacing the PTO seal, so I will drain the oil and save it since it was replaced recently.
Not having to take out the trumpet housing makes my life easier. The lower link is not broken, just loose on the one side.

Yes I check the level every time I use the tractor.

On the to35, 35 and 135 the rear axles, rear diff, pump and transmission share the oil, all 7 gallons of it. If it leaked I would have an environmental disaster on my hands :-)

have you checked the oil level in the differential recently?

Thanks Steve and Bruce, it doesn't seem to be leaking oil yet so I will leave it alone for now.
When I have more time I will remove the trumpet housing.
Now to confirm the removal I can pull the whole trumpet assembly without removing the axle from the other end, my axle bearings do not leak, so the less things to take apart the better.

No, I would not try welding it.

It's loose now, welding is not going to hold it.

It's going to leak oil.

No easy fix.

Now you can buy a new part and pull the axle trumpet as one piece. Engine hoist works well for this job.
