Rayco Super Jr 1625 Axle Removal

Recommended Posts

Evening all,

 

Wonder if anyone can help please? Im trying to get the front axle off my 1625 stump grinder. Ive taken the wheel bearings off and slackened all the grub screws i can find and removed the bolts on the inner bearing housing, but i cant work out how to get the shaft to move!! :001_huh:

 

Has anyone done this and can give Me some pointers please? Or even better has anyone got a copy of IPC so I can see how it all comes apart? Id be really grateful as at the moment im stumped. Pardon the pun!

Thanks for the reply. Ill take some pics and post tomorrow - should have thought of that!

 

Ive removed the whhelbearings as it seems that once they are off the shaft should slide out. There isnt much else stopping it apart from 2 bushes which i cant shift hence this thread as I wonder if im on the right track.......

are they axles like on a trailer. so are stub axles. i would have thought the shaft is a permanent fixture. and it would be the bearings and such that can only be changed .if the axles are worn then it may be new stub axles. eg indespension. would bolt to chassis

Morning. Thanks for your replies. The axle is a solid shaft incorporating the wheel bearings at each end and the sprocket for the drive chain (its a self drive model). It seems you take all the bearing assemblies off, loosen everything else and withdraw the axle from one side of the machine. Thats the bit I cant do!!

 

Malcom was my first port of call. He was only interested in selling me the IPC for £50 and the bits. Ill machine the parts myself so he sort of lost interest at that point!

 

Am off to the workshop now so I'll try to post some pics later.

Hi, hope this exploded diagram of the self-propel wheels drive system is of use to you. Like you said it looks like the shaft should pull straight out of the chassis. If you have trouble seeing it PM your e mail and I will send you the scan of it.

We had a guy to do ours a few years back. Can't remember the reason why now but after half a day of hammering, pulling and oxy the thing wouldn't move. He ended up cutting it out and welding it back together.

 

Sorry. Not much help.
