Re: My first stuck axle

That's a good point. One or both of my pinion yokes may be stuck too.

I think I'm going to set up a 1/4 inch x 2 inch steel bar and drill holes in it. I keep a stock of flat bar and, angle iron and some round pipe around for whatever may need to be plated, reinforced, welded on or built. I built a lawn mower trailer with some I had and scavenged the axle and rear wheels off an old mower. It works great.

I can bolt the bar to the pinion yoke to hold it for taking the nuts off and torquing them back down. I've also seen a huge monkey wrench used to hold the pinion yoke to work on the nut but I don't have a huge monkey wrench.
