1973 Broadmoor center pivot rusted??!

Recommended Posts

Our 738 had been sitting for awhile and now that were getting it ready for service the center pivot will flex to the left a bit but not to the right at all.

We had this problem with the pin on rear wheel, thought the smart idea was to heat the wheel tube with the torch and use 2 3lb hammers to hit on each side of the wheel. It worked but also bent the axle enough that we had to press it straight again.

So before I try the heat and hammer thing again I have been spraying it with PB Blaster and tapping it with a light hammer to help it soak in. Is there a better way to free these up without wrecking and bending anything?
