I have a 3000 late style I am trying to get the brake drum off of. I have heated it and hit it and it does not want to move. Am I missing something or is it just stuck from being on so long?

I fabricated a puller out of 2" x 3/16 (I think) square tubing. If I can get the pictures to load I will tack them onto this reply. We'll see how it goes.

The idea is to grasp the pressure ring on the drum and line up the fixture with a couple of axle studs that have a pair of nuts run down on them prior to the installation. The nuts are then backed out putting pressure on the under side of the yoke forcing outward pressure........put as much as you dare without stripping the threads. Then do what you normally do to get one loose and when you hit the sweet spot it will "pop" loose.

The plugs at the end of the fixture were necessary as an after thought as the lip of the fixture wanted to bend as you applied pressure.

Good luck.

My son's 3500 was the same. We heated, beat, built a puller but no go. He bought new drums & took a 10 lb sledge trying to break the old ones off. Both popped off w/out breaking.

Sometimes there will be two countersunk screws holding the drum onto the axle shaft flange. These are placed there to keep the brake drum from falling off when you want to remove only the tire. Assuming you have those out, more heat and more beat is about the only solution. If you have access to a large puller, you can also put a small amount of tension on it with that, but you can't go too crazy with it because you'll crack the drum if you pull too hard.

I don't know what you're using for heat, but a torch with a rosebud tip might be what it takes to get the job done.

Since you don't offer the information the questions have to be asked. Did you back the adjusters all the way off? Does the drum rotate freely with no contact with the shoes? Does the drum move at all? If it won't move at all not even wiggle a little you need to use the hammer some more. It can also be rusted on around the studs in which case penetrating oil is needed along with the hammer. If it pulls off a little way a ridge on the back edge can be getting hung up on the shoes, necessitating backing the adjuster off more.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
