I snapped my spline shaft on the driveshaft side that turns the cutting deck. I removed the shield and the pulley. I tapped the broken shaft from underneath
the tractor and the bearing is about 2/3 of the way out. But, there seems to be a lot of tension on the neck of the bearing. The broken spline is flush with the interior wall of the tractor.
I didn't want to force it out until I ask if I am doing something wrong. I thought it would have been snug but, it is very tight in the hole.
Any help would be appreciated.
