Axle question

Recommended Posts

ehertzfeld
I finally got around to changing the axle shaft on my 64 Landlord. Ok here is my question, is the right side hub suposed to turn on the shaft? Im trying before I put the hub into the diff. I had to use a hammer to pound it on the axle shaft. I didnt have to hit that hard but I did have to use a hammer. Also there is a C clip on the shaft, dose the hub go against it, or over it? I have the hub against it right now. When I try to put the retaining ring "the one at the end, with the set screws", It does not reach the axle shaft. It's like the shaft is too short. Any ideas? Thanks Elon

Are you using an early axle shaft with the newer right side hub/gear assembly that doesn't have the traction control bolts? The newer hub is longer and you have to use the longer axle shaft with it. I have posted pics showing both shafts side by side before... http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=18377&SearchTerms=3310+H

Kirk, it is an eary axle shaft. What the problem was I had the washer that goes against the C clip the wrong way. When I said it wasnt long enough, I should have given a measurement. It was off by a 16th of an inch or maybe less. Thanks bud
