726 (37771) Auger Bearing Replacement

Hello,

Took on a big project for myself, replacing the auger bearing in my Toro 726OE, model 37771. I'm to the point now where I have the auger disc off and I need to get the impeller hub off. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this? From what I can tell, it must just be brute force to get it off? There is no set screw that I can see.

Here is the diagram --> https://lookup3.toro.com/Ill/2X/420/...?1577479758216

I'm trying to get part 4 off, to change part 5.

Any info would be appreciated!

It looks like the bolt retains it and it's supposed to be a slip fit onto the shaft as there is a flat on the shaft and the inside of the hub. Add rust and you're looking at using a little persuasion (hammer, gear puller, ...) , penetrating oil and maybe heat.
Have you tried something like a steering wheel puller ?? You can usually get one on loan from an auto parts store if you don't have one or want to buy one.
