    How do I separate these two steering knuckle pieces??

    Hi all. I'm attempting to change the seal on the front end axle assembly on my JD 4500 compact tractor. I have it disassembled to the point where I need to separate the housings where the drive line transition.
    I have attached a photo of the piece I am referring to in case I didn't use the correct terminology or didn't explain it clearly. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Mike

    Not sure how to help but you'll get more help if the post is in the proper section.

    One of the mod's will catch this and move it for you.

    It was moved.

    I did edit the title for more views and responses. And it’ll help with future searches.

    Now all we need is some of our experts to show up. It is Sunday, so they are probably sleeping in.

    Thanks Kenny! I can't seem to get the spindle gear (A) off of the shaft. It would appear that once those are off, the two pieces should separate.
