3314 Transaxle 'Gone to pieces"

Recommended Posts

MPH
Carried all the Vickers boxes out to the shop, opened and spread out, thought, this don't look too hard. So, was gonna drain the transaxle, bone dry, started rocking the tractor and nothing was moving, the disengage Lever IS in the lock position, can see the sliding gear move when handle is moved. If I turn the driven gear with my fingure the left axle tube turns but not the wheels or the right tube. Tractor rear is jacked up now. If I turn the left wheel, rt goes the same direction, it is possible to turn one forward and the other backwards, seems normal, differential working, Right? Anyone with a clue what I should be looking for in pieces when I take it apart??? thanks. Found the problem this morning, I think, These RBT's aren't suppose to have two piece axle tubes are they?

I was told this morning earlier buy a rather smart--}:)- cheerful parts lady at SLI this was my problem, no biggie, they have one in stock:D So, it's now ordered along with seals and bearings. Of course, she didn't tell me the cost til I ordered it[:0]

I didn't get the pics for you yesterday because we had snow,sleet and freezing rain Monday early AM and it's outside and uncovered(no engine). Will get them for you soon. Thom Sounds like the diff. is locked.

" it's only a RBT" Gotta object to that remark Kris, It was til it came into my shop, remember?

Thankyou Brenda, and thankyou for the great job you've done shipping me parts for something around 5 years now ^ You certainly deserve and 'atta boy', oops, 'atta girl' for that. Fact I had to do nothing to the engine and the rest of the tractor is in good shape, the price of the tube really isn't that bad.:) Thanks for all the pictures Tom, that will be very helpful when I start putting it back together. The one hose looks to be not attached to anything, the one in the side of the cooler. Something not showing there? Also the cable and pulley on the underside, is that for mower lift? Don't have that on mine. here's afew shots of the way it looks tonight

rear end of tractor, pretty easy to pull out

TransAxle in pieces, somebody opened it up and looked at the problem once upon a time, no gasket

Cleaned up

And for those of you who haven't seen a Differential in a pile of piece, clean of the 35 year old grease

Marty, If you want a really tight limited slip in that diff, put a washer under each of those springs when you put it back together to add a little more pre-load force to the spiders. I did this in the 61 Wards when I installed the late model diff. It pulls like the diff is locked, but turns like it is open. I think it is worth doing while you have it apart. Remember that the washers must fit over the tube to compress the springs more. Brenda, don't feel bad. I used quick reply for a long time and couldn't figure out how the others were adding the faces. Old Roy finally told me to use the one at the top instead of the one at the bottom. Duh!! B). . . :I. . . :D

One lonely little spacer missed the post office today,...I went stomping around in the cold, the wind was blowing, the snow was flying, looking for those used parts:DCame back empty handed, half froze, wet feet.... Do you feel bad yet??? }:) :D :D 8)

""Came back empty handed, half froze, wet feet.... Do you feel bad yet???" Naw. It's because you try so hard to find what I need that I ALWAYS call SLI when I need parts. I do THANK you for your extra effort, even if I don't feel bad.}:)

Marty, the 3300 series still used the direct acting(and counterbalanced) lift shaft with lift rods to front and rear and a chani to lift the mower deck. The pulley is for the cable to lift the mower and there should be another one for the cable to the rear lift. Those pics had to be from a 3400 or newer tractor, which explains the difference. The 3300 series also still used the old FDT style PTO while the 3400 and newer tractors use the cone clutch....

Man! You guys are talkin now! I'm going to be tearing into mine (3415) in a few weeks. This past summer I had a terrible whine in the rear-end and it's time to look into it. I figure that while it's apart I might as well go ahead and clean it up and do an overhaul. MPH - thanks for the pics. The tractor pics look exactly like mine and the those transaxle and diff pics will help. Thanks again. I don't want to steal your thread so I'll start a new one when I get into it.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
