Hi its best to use a press to remove the spindle shaft its a press fit into the bearings, if the shaft broke at the blade attach part  a new spindle shaft will be needed as the shaft is pressed into the blade attach and then welded. Good luck with it, I repaired one of mine this summer I'm lucky in that I have a good friend that works in a machine shop he fabricated a shaft and welded it then I reassembled it using the press in my shop.

have you measured the bolt that was my original plan but found that bolts are undersize they are not a full .75" and the bearings just slope around on it.

That will work, I had some .75 axle stock but when my friend went to machine it they accidentally cut the threads undersized for a self locking nut so they made a new one and it turned out good, they pressed the shaft into the blade mount and TIG welded it in place.
