I have a 1999 Suzuki King Quad 300 that has a bad differential. It has a non-factory 2" hole in the bottom of it. I need to pull the axles out to remove it. For the life of me I can't get them to budge.
I started out by using a 2' and 3' pry bar. Nope. Then I bought a slide hammer, and that does not touch it. I wrapped 1/8" cable around the axle at the differential, clamped it in place, made a loop well away from the machine, and put a sledge hammer in the loop. When I swing the sledge and hit the end of the cable I can tell I am hitting it hard, but it is not budging.
I have another differential to put in. On the end of each shaft that the axle slips over is a split ring keeper. I can't believe that as hard as I've hit that thing that it is not budging.
Any ideas? Thanks for the time,
