Paul, I would think that the tractors had been abused in a past life. Breaking an axle tube is usually from fatigue. This comes from popping the clutch hard in both forward and rearward directions. It is like bending a wire back and forth. If you keep doing it, the wire will eventually break. Fatigue is more pronounced and happens quicker with loaded tires, since the wheels can't spin to relieve the load, like a set of un-loaded turf tires will. I don't think your tube failures have anything to do with the diff. I have run a couple of them that were completely locked, and still have not broken an axle tube. The excess load from a locked diff is on the solid axle that goes all the way thru the unit. Loading on the tube is still the same since it just transfers the load from the tranny to the diff. I would suggest that you make sure that your clutch engages smoothly when you get the tranny fixed. A clutch that grabs suddenly, will eventually fatigue and break the axle tube.

Hi, I agree with Rod, but would like to add something. Usually these failures start in the end of the keyway. Since most steel failures start at a sharp corner this is the most vulnerable spot. Usually when you take one of these failures apart and examine the keys they will be hourglass shaped. This is caused by stress. When the keys get a little play, they then the rocking action puts undue stress on the tube at the top of the keyway. On almost every one of these failures I have seen, the stress crack starts in the bottom of the keyway and runs to the groove where the retainer ring is. If you look at these failures with a magnifying glass you will probably see the hairline crack line usually at about a 45 degree angle from the keway. Often the crack will run through the groove for the ring and continue at about a 45 Degree angle and the triangle shaped piece will break outward and break the side of the transmission case. I have abused these tractors and broken axle tubes. I have also learned that when they get about so much abuse if you replace the keys with new ones, the tubes will last a lot longer. I never remove a differential assembly from an axle tube without replacing ALL of the keys when I put it back together. Even if the keys are not very old. Al Eden

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
