Hi, looking to replace tiller bearing on the tine shaft but need to remove tines first. What is a good way to remove the tines from the lower shaft. It is a pto driven tiller. Thanks for you answers

On my tiller, I had to swap tines around as they were on backwards. Seems there was just a bolt through the shaft. Had to heat one side some to get it off!

Got the bolt out no problem and heated with mapp gas torch and used 2 jaw puller but did'nt budge. Think I may need to try oxy/acet torch next. Hate to cut the tine tube and then weld it up after I get it apart but starting to think it may be the only option.

I'd try everything before splitting it.

Next thing I would try, would be heating the tube slightly, and then striking the tines on the back side to try and rotate the tines. Shock can sometimes be quite effective.

Another thing to remember.

When the shaft and tube have been rusted together for so long. Heating the tube (the piece that the tines are welded to) heats the shaft the same amount.

use the slightest heat on the tube. it doesn't take much, usually.

If you can get it to move at all, you should be able to work it loose.

Penetrating oil, shock, heat, patience, and elbow grease, pretty much always works for me.
