Goofy 826 Axel Repair

I was very excited to buy a new "old" 826 for what I thought was a good price. The first time I ran it - the drive chain to the sprocket on the differential shaft came apart. As I went to put it back on, I discovered the axel bushing was heavily worn creating the play that allowed the chain to come off. I took off the wheel and found that someone had repaired the axel by welding a piece of threaded pipe over the outer shaft. I have the new bushing but I can't get to the axel off because it is all welded up (see photos).

Does anyone have any thoughts about how get this apart? Can I split the differential and slide the sprocket off of the axel and then slide the shaft through the bushing seat?

Do I have to torch of grind off the axel and buy a new axel?

That's just flat out ugly. I do think you can take the diff apart and get the axle out that way.

Is yours an 826 or and 826D and is there an actual model and serial number plate on it or just the 826.
Depending on the year it can go a couple different ways.

This is what I'm seeing on the JD site.

Have you tried undoing the nut on the hub? It might just slide off there.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Knee jerk, yup gotta take that off. Second thought is if if comes out of the diff ok it's good to go the way it is and why mess with it since it works and looks like there's room for the new bushing "as is".

I think that before I'd break out the heavy artillery, I'd try opening up the diff and unbolting the sprocket. It's not the most elegant design, but it's not the ugliest.

I am curious as to what's under the pipe. Looks like there was a problem with the axle before the bushing became an issue. Think I would be looking for a new axle in any case.

I wonder where the guy who did that learned to weld? Looks like maybe he took the Sesame Street course.

Work fascinates me.

Thank you everyone for your honest replies: I guess ugly is a fair description. I'm not gonna beat myself up over my decision to buy it in the first place, instead just kinda get after it. I agree it must have fallen off of something, maybe "the truck of the guy who stole it."

Thanks for the parts breakdown too. I think I'll try opening the differential and hopefully slide the new bushing over the pinion gear, if that is possible.

Again, thanks. I'll keep you posted.
