+4 on Belter's diagnosis. I had the same thing happen. Wondered how the axle could increase in diameter with time. I could just get it out but it did not come easy. It was only tight on the right side (from riding position view), which is the larger diameter end. I put some calipers on the diameters and had a measurable difference. I put mine in a vice (nylon jaws) and very carefully reshaped it.

Thanks everyone. I'll get to this after I get my riding mower back together. Yep, it's that kind of month.

I appreciate your help.

Mine was a real PITA on reassembly the 1st time since my bike was purchased used and no amount of sanding was going to cut it. Had it machined back in shape. Damn axles are expensive!
