This is not what I asked for. I wanted to know how to relpace the front axle center section on a 3910 ford tractor. Two wheel drive tractor.
Mechanic: dd85, Foreman replied 3 years ago
Was it shown in the parts picture I attached? Or did you mean to hold differential houseOh. The front axle center section . Put a jack under the oil pan. Take the adjustable knees that have the wheels on them all off. Take the tie rod ends off. In the center section there is a pin there that you have to remove and then the center section should just fall outIn the morning I'll get to service manual and send you copies of how to do that

Do I have to remove the rad to access the pin that holds the center axle piece.. or can I remove the pin with the rad in place.
Mechanic: dd85, Foreman replied 3 years ago
You should be able to take the pin out without removing the radiator. The radiator sits on top of the bolster and pin is on the bottom of the bolster

Do you need a speical tool to remove the pin. The nut has rounded corner by design. My sockets slip off the nut and can not remove it
Mechanic: dd85, Foreman replied 3 years ago

No Special tool.

Sometimes we weld a nut on the pin, then use socket to fit the nut.

Make sure there is not weight on the pin, up or down pressure.
