The part of shaft that the drum sits on looks pretty good and the drum fits tight on it. I took the shaft to someone with a press, and will have them press the new bearings on, but they don't have any idea how to get this old bearing off, and charge by the hour if I wanted them to try, so I thought I'd try for myself.
I tried welding the 3 nuts on it, and it didn't budge. I couldn't keep the shaft from turning while trying to wrench the bolt on the puller, so i thought I'd use an impact wrench and that broke my puller, it was a cheap one so no loss. I will try using the grinder method sometime this weekend, and if that dose not work, or I happen to damage it I will add a shaft to my order. I plan on going with TM for the bearings and seals, and see that they have used shafts for $40. I have been holding off on ordering until I know what I need to avoid paying shipping twice.
Thanks again for the help.
Oh, I am now in the process of looking for a pressure washer, I should have got one before I started the project. Anybody have any idea how much psi and gallons per minute it takes to clean old grease off? I don't want to buy more than I need, and don't want to buy something too cheap just to find out it does not get the job done.

Cut it almost all the through with a cutoff wheel on a dremmel, then split it with a chisel.

Just giving an update, I got the cub put back together and running again. I would like to thank everyone for the help, it would have taken me much longer to figure it out on my own.

The only problem now is my 5 year old daughter claimed the cub as her's. She comes running when she hears it start, and wants a ride.

Thanks
She didn't help much, she was more of a pain asking "how much longer"
