ZTR (Cub Cadet M72 Tank) Caster wheel yoke (need help)

I am trying to remove the caster wheel yoke on my Cub Cadet M72 Tank.
After I remove the cotter pin and slotted nut. How do I get the yoke out of the Front Axel Assembly?

Here is a picture. My gut tells me to just use a block of wood and hammer it out, but I don't want to mess anything up.

Thanks in advance.

I used a 3lb hammer and a block of wood last night and it would not budge. I did manage to split several pieces of wood.

Does anyone have any other tricks on how to get this out.

I am replacing the Yolk anyway, so the threads really aren't an issue.
Thanks

If u aren't concerned with damaging it.... the Just beat it out with a sledge hammer. As long as the castle nut And cotter pin is removed. It should come out

Like what the others have said, I just replaced mine last week and had to really pound on it.

I got a flat tire a while back, got it fixed, and when I put the tire back on, I guess I didn't tighten the bolts up on the yoke fork enough. When I was mowing the other day, I noticed the bolt and nut was turning through the yoke, see pics here, http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.p...=1#post4415720

1) I'm guessing it's best to order a new yoke, around $75, or have my friend that can weld/fix anything? Of course I told him what happened, and he says he can fix it?

2) IF I order a new "yoke" is that all I need? The part you need to pound out with the threads, does a new one come with the new yoke?

3) What should that bolt/nut that goes through the yoke/wheel be torqued to? Mine got loose and caused this.
