The engine came out to go to a better chassis.
The axle was bolted on and came off in 3 parts.
A sawzall with a "Torch" blade was used to make the cut.
It took a good bit of scrubbing and dawn dish soap to get to where it was clean enough to work with.
Here the front and back supports are hanging on the pivot.
I reassembled the axle to the cut off frame section but did not get an pictures.
The wagon frame was hard to disassemble because the bolt heads had screwdriver slots. Most I could hold with a vicegrip but one was so difficult I cut it off with the sawzall. The next time I get that type of fastener I will replace it with a hex head bolt if it fits.
The wagon frame is so light that I may make a new one. It would be nice to find a set of wheels for the back and a box then I could just repair the existing wagon instead of cannibalizing it.
Yesterday we had a snow warning so I moved everything behind the shop so I could do snow removal if needed. Need to get more pics.

Yesterday I laid the frame and front end out. So far the best idea I can come up with is to form the existing frame around the cut off bit of tractor frame.
Postscript: I later traded the axle for a worn out 12.5HP briggs.
