Default Axle pivot pin

Any special magic to remove the axle pivot pin on a 149?? I removed the engine and retaining pin and wacked the pivot pin from both sides but was only able to move it about 1/8" then it hangs up. I dont want to damage anything so I stopped. Do I just need to swing harder or should i use a ball joint clamp and drive it out with pressure?

Sometimes I have had to heat the axle up to loosen the pin, I had one that I never could get out and had to torch it off and replace it.

Mine was loose but was grooved so bad it would not come out. When I had turned the frame over it came right out. So lifting the frame and not the axle might allow it to move also.

Regards,
Chris

On my 100, the shaft was rusted in the axel, the roll pin that held it in place to the frame was long gone. Ended up heating the heck out of it and taking a BFH and another shaft from something and beat the heck out of it. It fought us the whole way.

I've removed several of these over the years, and found that wear causes the pin to elongate to one side making removal difficult (as someone else stated above). I usually soak the area down with Pb Blaster, and jack up the front to take the weight off the axle and pin...usually a few taps and they are out.

Good luck

Thanks for the advice guys. Soaked it over night with PB blaster and gave it a few good wacks with BFH and out it came. As suggested it was worn out which was what locked it in. No rust on the surface in fact the pin looked like it was polished.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
