What nut are you talking about? The one that holds the blade on ?

Don't you just love engineers. What I have done in the past is use a chisel or punch and start hitting on it in the direction I want it to go. Just lock down the shaft in a vise and remember Lefty Loosey .

Other wise fine a truck parts dealer and see if he has a Bud Truck Wheel Bearing Locknut Socket in the size you need.

Are you trying to replace the bearings ? Probably cheaper then just buying a new spindle

3 pack (not o.e.) on ebay is around 200 shipped. i got bearings, races, dust covers( 3 sets) from a local big box store for around 50.00. scag uses the same bearing size a common lanscape trailer. i thought id save the money & catch up on my backlog of motogp races on the dvr. the T.V.M. principle left when the ex left!

thanks breezmister. i was thinking the same thing. i have always hated this 'last resort' technique because of the lack of torque upon reassembly. maybe ill try to weld a socket to it then wiz it off when im finished.

If you are planning to do more of these rebuilds, it might be better to get a Bud Socket and save yourself the aggravation.
