More BGB Questions

Recommended Posts

mbrook
Well this weekend I took on the BGB problem that I have but I am now stuck. What I need to do is replace or repair the side shaft in my 3212V. Here is how far I got. I remove the pulleys from the shaft and disconnect everything to the rear end and removed the "Drivers side" plate and the 3 bolt on the other side. I rolled the rearend away from the tractor and drained the BGB. I then removed the back plate off the BGB so I could get inside it. At this point all I should have to do is take the key out of the shaft and slide the shaft out. Right? But the key is stuck in the shaft and won't budge. I tried a liitle heat and some PB Blaster. I then put a par of vise grips on the key and if I wanted to I could drag the tractor around the garage. How do I get this stubborn key out? BTW this is the first BGB I have encountered.

They can be a bear to get started. The right punch is how i got mine startd to move,not to big and not to small for the key size. Once it moves up out of the slot i get my vice grips and slowly pull it out. Continuing to pound it out you will have a chance of damaging the key way, get it about 1/3 out and it should be possable to pull it the rest of the way. I dont recomend heat at all.

I have used a small chisel under one end and tapped it untill it moved. You will most likley need to replace the key when you are done. I would not use heat you may take the temper out of the shaft and the key.

If you can get it started moving with a punch like stated above you should be able to get a chisel following the keyslot in the shaft under the key, A worn out screw driver ground to the width of the slot will as work. MPH
