3212H Axle tube

Recommended Posts

WrongwayGS
I need to replace the axle tube on my 3212H tractor. Does anyone know if I need to split the case in order to do this, or can I get it out and the new one in with out getting into this big of an operation. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You will have to split the case. Not sure if you have a parts manual but below is one that you can download. http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCBEN8arF0rE3CNj5kbp796Dq

You have to split the case, but you can leave most of it on the machine. You can pull the wheels and axle, then remove the right side of the transaxle case while leaving the left side on. It's not quite as hard as you may imaging. Just make sure you have new seals ready to go in. Suggestion, after you get the new tube in put a collar around it between the grease fitting and the differential, to add support and prevent the new one from cracking. How bad is the existing one? Does the axle seal leak? Post a pic if you want.

The old one has broken into 2 pieces. i am looking at it thinkng if i have to pull the case apart, i might just drill a hole through the axle and tube and put a roll pin in. I did find one on ebay, guy said it should fit. I already have it 1/2 way out, should probably just replace it.

If the one in the link is what you are looking at it is for a variable speed and is part number 164223. You need part number 166066 which supercedes to 1670864SM and is $128.00 on Jacks website. http://cgi.ebay.com/simplicity-3012-Allis-chalmers-garden-tractor-AXLE-TUBE_W0QQitemZ220535784780QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3358f5054c http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCBEN8arHYrE3CNj5kbp796Dq http://www.jackssmallengines.com/searchdb2.cfm

If you put a pin thru it you will have a locked axle (no differential ability) and you won't be able to steer it. It's not that hard to pull the tube. Here's one of mine I have opened up right now (too cold outside to work on it): [IMG]http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn102/csa_forever_2008/DSC00847.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn102/csa_forever_2008/DSC00848.jpg[/IMG]

thank you all for the info. i will be pulling it out soon. i'm hoping i can repair it, or make a new one. unfortunately the price of a new one is a bit more than i can swing right now.

This is for a Vickers as well. With newer style differential. Will bolt right in. Within 50 miles? Pick it up cheap and save alot of time changing out axle tube. Either way would make a good spare. http://cgi.ebay.com/Simplicity-3415H-Tractor-Transaxle_W0QQitemZ200425368465QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2eaa486b91
