Stuck Rear Wheel on 47 Cub

Postby lliberto » Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:27 am

Need some advice here. I have a stuck rear wheel on my 47 Cub. All the lugs come off but the wheel won't budge. Am I missing something here or is it just rusted on? How do I get it off? Some of you may have seen this picture on before but here's what she looks like.

Make sure your tractor is secured and smack it with a sledge hammer from the inside. You can smack the wheel and not the center so you don't mess it up.

Rim and tire appear to be shot. Beat on the rim. Follow the advice previously provided.

A ratchet strap or come-along wrapped around a solid part of the wheel and back to the drawbar or opposite wheel with moderate tension on it may help things pop loose when you're whopping it with a hammer.

Hi,
If the wheel won't come off at the center after working on it, and you want to have the rim or tire replaced, you could take the rim off the red wheel center, and leave the center on the tractor. The rim has 4 bolts that hold it on the wheel center. :)

If it is drivable put the bolts in but leave turned out a round or two and drive it around some.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Rim should separate from the hub with a couple of good blows with the sledge hammer.

If not, I might take the saws all, metal cutting blades and slit completely through the rim in one spot. Then drive a large chisel in the slit. Then, back to the sledge hammer.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I agree with John, loosen it up and drive it. Its the easiest way to do the job.
