Fl250 Pillow Block Removal HELP
« on: January 06, 2012, 01:16:12 PM »
H All! I can't separate the rear axle pillow block from the rear axle axle. I have the axle and pillow block on the table but the pillow block won't come off the axle cause it hits a raise portion of the axle on either end. Any suggestions or tricks?

Thanks!

Hello! I don't have much for you other than to get a manual if it's not clear which way to press the axle out. Are  the raised sections just rust?
The usual 'my two cents' disclaimer applies. :)

You want to press things like that off.

Turns out that the previous owner (I'm guessing) when he did some welding on the Oddy frame got some weld splatter on the collars on the drive shaft. After I found the splatter and lightly ground them down the pillow block came off easily. Thanks for your reply(s) !!!
