Default Live axle sprocket removal help

This may be a dumb question, but is their a right way or an easy way to remove the sprocket and install a new one on this hex manco axle other than removing the whole axle?

Remove from the brake rotor side or the other side?
-I have a feeling the rotor side would be a pita.

Thanks-MT - soaking in PB as we type

Dropping the whole axle would be the way you do it.

Ugh thought so, but was hoping for some magic answer lol, Shouldn't be too bad, never dropped an axle before.

Should just be four bolts, it’s fairly simple, while your at it you can clean up that rotor also

Hm.. you can cut it in half and install a split sprocket if you like..
but frankly.. getting the original axle out isn't actually taking any longer than cutting the sprocket in half I'd say

Thought of that, but didn't find a split that would fit. But yea probably not too bad to remove, just annoying in the small workspace I have, but I'll gettirdone

Take pictures as you disassemble it or go to American Landmaster's site and get the exploded axle illustration for that model so things go back together correctly.

Couldn't actually slide the axle out because this cart has double skid bars/arms on the bottom, luckily the sprocket mount came of relatively easy then I could remove the sprocket and the axle to wire wheel a little.
