Thanks for the tips! Back when we fiberglassed it, the hole was pretty small, but it was surrounded by a lot of rusted, rotted metal, so I think it's pretty bad. I've never done any metal repair work, ...

Okay great, I'll try it today with the wheel still on. That's a great idea.

Oh sorry, I wasn't clear with my initial post. It does spin the axle and the hub/drum.

Small update: tried to remove the broken rear axle today, but had no luck. I couldn't figure out how to remove the shaft nut because the axle with nut spun every time I tried to loosen it.
