I wanted to get a second opinion before I really do something I shouldn't. I have to replace the load shaft seals on my 4430 due to a leak. I have the snap rings and the caps off of the drawbar support, but I cannot get the load shaft out of the tractor. Should it just slide out? I have tried hitting it with a brass punch and hammer. It will only move about a quarter of an inch, then stop. I have also tried to use an air hammer on it with no luck. Has anyone been in this situation before? My next move is to use a porta power to try to force it out. Is there anything else holding it in the transmission case? Thanks in advance!!!!
