Well I have had to take a break from my H14 1456 PTO tractor rebuild project to get things organized around here with all the tractors and attachments I picked up this winter and get them put away so I could clear the driveway. And I thought I would try to remove the tiller extensions on one of the round back tillers I picked up.
I managed to finally remove the clevis pin, they were fused pretty solid in the shaft and applied O/C torch to really heat up the hub sleeve but to no avail. I can't get it to move.
So now I have decided to stand the tiller up on end and begin applying PB Blaster to the joint where the hub ext shaft slides into the sleeve of the inner hub. I plan on giving it a squirt everyday for a week or so and try it again. This time I will heat it and use two large pipe wrenches to try to turn the shift in the hub.
If you guys have any input on how to proceed, any experience having done this before I would greatly appreciate it, Maybe I'm missing something here!
