Continue adding PB throught fitting. May hang it to a tree to see if weight can pull it apart.

The weight will be not enough , I suggest after long time soaking put the parts together as on this picture except the worm gear .
If its steady on the pole You can try to turn the axel with your hands at the wide ring .
Once its moving , remove the lower turning bolt and loosen the the top nuts so You can move the wide ring a bit aside .
Than try to pull and twist the axel out .
Since there is a nylon bushing in it I would not heaten it with a flame burner .

Sounds like your recommendation might work! Thank you Trust will post results in a couple of days. Will keep soaking it for awhile.

This is on top of your first reccommendation Trust?
Or a different one? Here I need to be careful not to damage the thread

You can try it after soaking , put up the tension and use the hammer .
If no result , try my first idea and when the axle moves , than use that threaded rod to bring some tension .
Its easier to lift the axle by that rod instead of keep lifting that heavy part and turn it at the same time .
To push out the axle , the rod has to be pulling out long enough , not as short on the picture .

I would not hammer against that bolt. The threaded part sticking out of the main shaft is a bolt welded into a thin piece covering the end of the tube which is that main shaft. I don't think that assembly can take that hammering. Some pictures from my first one.

Thanks Magic Static. Yes I am treating that end bolt like a baby! Taking this shaft out is more difficult them I thought. Must be really stuck! Hope I don’t damage anything

I just broke a tooth of the half moon gear. Would it still work without a teeth? Or should I throw it away and get done with it??

Weld a heavy bead across the broken area of the tooth and shape it with a grinder. And file it smooth. Just like new :)
I did that once with a big aluminium gear on a winch that was missing a tooth. The guy couldn't tell which tooth was replaced. :)
