I am in the process of replacing the inner and outer axel seals in a 1950 Farmall C. The inner seal {one closest to the bull gear side} has the bearing between me and the seal I need to get to. Tell me the best way to remove this bearing so I dont do something stupid.....again. Amazing how stinky and nasty this rear end oil is.

It looks just like the H and 300 axles I have had apart, only smaller. Now that you have all of the retainers off you should be able to pick it up by the 'ears' of the housing and bump the end of the axle on a concrete floor and it will pop right out. This may not apply for Cs but it sure does look the same.

Hi Paul,
Put a block of wood on the floor so you don't damage the splines, stand it up vertically with bull gear end down. Pick it up a bit and drop it on the splined end and the shaft with outer bearing will slide out.
Inside the housing will be full of grease from bearing being greased for many years. Once the shaft is out you can go down through the housing and drive out the other bearing and then the seal.
good luck
Dennis

Get a block of wood and a big sledge hammer and tap on the outer end of the shaft first. If it is made the way I think it is the inner bearing should drive out with the shaft so you will be able to get to the seal.

Can that greasy housing be removed from the shaft in the center? If it can then you would have access to the bearing. Hal

They will tap back in with a mallet or a hammer and a block of wood.

So, you must have gotten them out, right?
I found it a help to file a chamfer on the end of the splines to aid in starting the bull gear back on.

Above are some photos of my rebuild of my 240, which I believe has the same rear axle design as the Super C. As everyone has said, the bearing should tap off . . . yours must be up against a burr on the shaft. A gear puller may help ease it off, but I'd really try to find whatever imperfection along the splined end is causing the hang up before I apply too much lateral force on that bearing. You'll need a smooth slip for reinstalling the entire axle, so best to touch up the splines first. Good luck.
