Unhappy worn out bearing replacement

I have a 1971 Ariens model 910995. The triangle bearing on the right side of the blower where the tire is located is completely shot. How do I get that off the shaft when there is a bracket that does not want to come off ?? It does not seem to be welded on but how do I remove it?? Thanks

Is it the bushing holder that's bolted to the transmission housing body ?
You'd remove the wheel and then remove the three bolts and it should slide off.
What bracket is giving you problems ?

You'll have to remove the axle. You need to knock the pin out of the lockout hub, and it will come off. Then you can slide the axle flange out of the differential. Inside the chassis, there will be a small roll pin on the right side of the axle you need to remove. After removal, the axle can be pulled out on the right side. Then Your Bearing carrier can be removed. If the carrier itself is not too bad, You can just replace the bronze bushing available in most hardware stores. Not that hard of a repair.

bearing replacement

Thanks for the info. I will give it a try. I guess it is obvious that the axle comes out only in 1 direction. After 45 years that bushing/bearing is pretty bad.

It probably has at least one more snowstorm in it...

Work fascinates me.

Thanks for the diagram but the problem is not where the circle is. In this diagram the tire lug nuts are attached to a triangle part but my lug nuts thread into a flange that is welded to the axle. Can't remove the worn part with this flange welded to the axle. Maybe we are not on the same page but this diagram does not show the flange that I have.

Time for your camera.

Maybe something broke and some ***** welded something that isn't supposed to be welded. Can't imagine someone welding a wheel hub to the axle but then again I bought one with mismatched wheels where they turned one around 180 deg and drilled a new hole next to the body because the axle had broken off out where it was supposed to be pinned

It was really cold, dark and it looked to be well kept so I just handed over the money and loaded it up. Didn't notice the wobble until the next day, to late.

Axle Has to Come Out. Period.

K4, You explained accurately how I get all my "friends and family" machines.

At the cocktail party, it's a simple fix (shouldn't be a problem I'll check it out). Delivered or picked up is another story I've stood over very well maintained machines wondering how they could have possibly placed the new bolt or screw or washer or nyloc nut???????? Amazing what people think will fix something.

ROTFLMAO

You've seen the photo of my Troy hand me down. I can hear him now, let's give it to the kids. Thanks Dad (in-law).

For what I spent on new skids (worn out) the friction disc and plate, axle bushings (worn through) and some other stuff I could have had a really nice 70's Ariens.
Still haven't been able to cure it of it's surging.
But I have to say it's worked great for two years doing almost 400' of gravel.
