OK looking at those pictures a second time makes much more sense now. The upper piece you are trying to remove may have an interference fit between the bearing and the shaft. I can't see clearly but another possibility is that the shaft is tack welded to the bearing (in the side view it looks like there may be a couple of tack welds hidden beneath rust).

Are you going to drop the rudder once the quadrant is off? If so; you could cut the rudder post between the quadrant and the rudder tube with a sawzall and then remove the quadrant with the upper part of the post still attached and take it to a machine shop for final disassembly.

Got it

I didn't read your post but you hit the nail on the head - except for the drop the rudder part - it had to go to the trash not to the bottom.

The sawz-all was replaced by a 7 inch cutting wheel - I lashed the upper rudder post and hauled it about a foot out of the rudder log, cut, rotate, cut, rotate (1 3/8 diameter) and then once cut, bang, bang, bang and PLOP - out she went - hauled her to the surface, dumper her in the dink and hauled her away.

I've drilled the new holes for mounting the quadrant in a new place and need to go to the shop to have it slipped out of the quad if I want to use the same shaft in a 90 degree position to drive the tiller arm on the new rudder already installed.

Otherwise, I am home free.

How about posting some pictures of your hull. I'd like to see what a movable sea-farm looks like.
