YM14/GT14 Drive shaft removal?

Postby Nanmar » Sat Apr 13, 2019 5:21 pm

Hello,
I'm new here and new to Yanmars. I recently brought a none running YM14/GT14 in pretty bad shape. Got her going after a few hours and the engine runs well with great compression and minimal smoke all gear shift :D but as you'd expect from a tractor of this vintage the running gear is not so good.
My question regards removing the drive shaft as the front U joint is totally shot. Is the shaft design to slide through the U joint for removal (I've removed the clip and pins) or do I need to remove the bearing housing on the gearbox/diff.
Next question; is it possible to recondition the U joint or do I need to find a full replacement U joint (hen's teeth I imagine?) or is there an aftermarket option I can use?

Any help would be much appreciated.
Mark
