Looking great !!
Sometimes, I have cracked a few hubs trying to remove wheels, and they are straight splined axles. I would sayOoh, you guys have troubles separating wheels from axles too. Keep us up to date/watching with interest.
My 17-28 Twin City was that way, several 10-20s and a W-30. Had a cutout rim handy for the 17-28 to repair.My w-12 is this way, and so is a friends fordson. we were wondering how this stuff occurred and this makes sense.
Seems to be a fairly common thing on tractors that spent lots of hours plowing. I had a TC17-28 ( since passed on to a new owner) that had the inside flange worn off and had been "repaired" with a piece of 1/2 in. re-bar welded on.My 17-28 Twin City was that way, several 10-20s and a W-30.

I remember my Father and Uncle had trouble with a Fordson rear wheel when I was a kid. It took heat to remove it. Maybe try heat cylcling it, good and hot, they had the whole rear hub a dull red hot a few times before it finally moved. They HAD to get the wheel of this tractor, I think to replace a bearing or maybe remove the belt pulley... it was a while ago. If you can leave yours, it may not be worth the trouble.I broke the flange on the hub using a regular puller. It will have to be repaired before it goes back on. I've started the long term game of soaking it in oil everytime I'm in the shop. Hopefully it will let go in a couple months time. If not it will get sandblasted and put on all while attached to the axle. Should work out either way!
