I am having some difficulty removing the wear sleeve from the front axle pinion shaft on a JD650. This is where the drive shaft attaches to spin the 4wd. Any advice? It seems to be stuck on the shaft.

It will most likely be adhered to the shaft with some sort of loctite product. Not sure if it is one of the speedi sleeves, which are very thin or there are wear sleeves that are a little thicker. The thin ones are tricky. You could heat it a little to loosen the loctite but i caution you not to use too much heat. If you are careful you can peel the thin ones off with a good chisel and the thicker ones you can tap on the sealing surface of them with a chisel until they pop free.

This sleeve is thick. Could you please explain this a little more? "the thicker ones you can tap on the sealing surface of them with a chisel until they pop free"

Take a good chisel and basically use it to cut the wear sleeve. You want to cut acroos the sleeves width by tapping on the chisel. One you are almost through the wear sleeve will pop free generally if you've score it well across the width of the sleeve. Hope this helps.

Do you have any pictures of it?

I do not want to cut this wear sleeve because it is no longer available from JD and I need to reuse it. This sleeve is a thick piece of metal that I would call a collar but I think the manual refers to it as a wear sleeve. How can I remove it , and reuse it when the other front end repairs are done?

#18 which is referred to as a spacer.
Ok now that I see exactly what we are dealing with, DO NOT cut that spacer as you know. I looked and there are definitely none available through deere. If you have not done so already you will need to removed the four bolts that hold that housing to the front differntial and removed that housing and pinion shaft assembly. That sleeve is pressed onto that shaft according to the manual and will only be able to be removed once the assembly is off of the differential and pressed apart. Let me know if you need more information. :bigthumb:

Wear sleeve removal
When I saw that title the first thing that came to mind was some sort of new auto detaching shirt sleeves for PTO safety, and they were something that I should consider wearing.
