The BFH isn't cutting it either.. I've got the quad chained to the lolly column so it won't move, enough chain for a good swing and all the excess chain wrapped around the 10lb sledge. Guessing that's about 12lbs in total. I left the screw drivers in thinking that if it moves at all, the screw drivers would drop out. Didn't budge at all.

If I wasn't worried about pulling the column out from under my house, I'd put a cumalong on the chain instead of that hammer and anchor the other end of the cumalong to my car.

At this point I'd be looking into the cost of a new transaxle. This thing has been fighting you for so long I don't think I'd dare putting new axles into that housing even if you did get them out

Dang Mugzy that baby must be stuck good!
Go right around the cup whacking the piss out of it to try and break the rust loose.
There used to be a utube video I saw sometime back that a guy in your predicament actually laid the wheeler on its side and tied to the rafters with a come along. Jacked it up a little to put pressure on it. Whacked the cup and it popped out.

I finally caved and took it to a friend's shop. I'd rather pay him 300-500 to pull the both of them and re-install everything.

Yeah, $100 should be a big price just to get them out for you.

I'd agree if all he was doing was pulling those axles AND I hadn't already tried pulling it out with a cumalong and airhammer. It's going to take him more than an hour.
He'll also be putting everything back together including a complete set of axles and bushings on both sides. So I'm OK with that. And while he is a buddy, business is business.
