Angry Pargo rear axle leaking into hub

Hi brand new member here. I have a 70s pargo cart converted to gas (90cc dirt bike motor). Bought for almost nothing and got it running. After a day I noticed oil leaking from rear driver side wheel. I've read this axle bearing and seal are one piece on these. Cannot figure how to remove axle. Removed wheel, brakes, and looks like hub and axle are one piece. I've used a slide hammer to try and remove but no luck. I'm waiting to upgrade motor until I can figure how to stop rear leak. Passenger rear is dry. I've removed the entire rear end from the cart now. I don't have the exact year or even know if this is an original rear but I think it is original with some "custom" weld work to have it moded for dirt bike motor. Any help at all is appreciated!! Thanks guys

Well, you are on the right path with the slide hammer. With carts that old, and I am just about to acquire my 8th vintage cart, that old metal welds itself together more than a welder can.

Slide hammer, heat, PB Blaster, slide hammer, more heat. It takes a lot of time.

I'm not at all familiar with Pargo, but on a Cushman, parts sources sell a special tool for this. It's just a cylindrical piece of steel with a threaded blind hole in one end. The thread matches the axle end. With the nut removed from the axle you screw this tool on until it bottoms out on the end of the axle. It does not reach the hub. Then with a very big hammer, you strike the end of this, likely many times hard. The brake drum/hub will eventually pop free of the axle taper, but you may need to help it with WD40 or other similar penetrating oil. The tool is relatively easy to make using a lathe and a bottoming tap to match the axle thread, if one isn't available for a Pargo. Using a tool like this keeps you from mushrooming the axle end or damaging the threads.

I hope this helps, but again, I know nothing about Pargo.
