Having removed many 35 and 135 axles in my 40 years of MF experience I can add that it is possible (usually) to remove the hub bearing from the axle shaft by bringing it down under its own weight squarely onto an anvil or something similar. This will take a lot of effort to do so it should not be attempted unless you are fit enough. Generally the bearing can be refitted by using a suitable piece of tube to drive the centre ring of the bearing on. However there is no escaping the need to heat the locking collar to cherry redness. You will normally only get one chance so it has to be hot enough the first time. If it goes on OK then leave it until it grips the shaft. If you have to heat it again you will heat the shaft as well.
When setting the axle shaft end-float arrange your jacking so that one side is a little lower than the other. The shaft in the lower side will try to 'fall out' allowing you to check the end float on the higher side knowing that you will get a true reading. If you do not have a DTI the adjustment can be made by removing the thinnest shims until you feel a little tightness with at least 4 bolts fitted when turning the shaft aagainst the other one. Add shims slowly until you can just hear a 'knock' when pulling and pushing on the shaft. If it's a 'bang' there are too many shims in. Refit the remaining bolts and check the end float again. There MUST be no tightness.
