cracked axle tube

Recommended Posts

You need to download the repair manual first. Then loosen the axle (the axle not the tube) by loosening the collar on the left side; and then slide the axle to the right so you can remove the snap ring holding the differential on. Then you remove the diff (watch the axle keys - don't let them fall into the differential - a small rag stuffed into the diff just below the axle tube will help prevent this). Finally, you can pull the axle through the tube and out to the left side, out of the tractor. Now, there are two ways to go about the rest - you can pull the entire transaxle case out and disassemble it on a bench, or you can leave it in the tractor and only remove the right side. I've done it both ways and would probably just pull the right side if doing it again. But - you'll have to remove the Sundstrand pump pulley first (it's in the way of the trans case coming off), and I have not been able to get one of these off with a puller. Suggest you cut it off with a Sawzall. Then pull the right side of the trans case off, remove the old tube, install new tube, and reassemble. The manuals are really good to have though...

Wow if you guys have been able to get those pulleys off, that's great. In my experience, over the years the shaft expands so no matter what you cannot remove them. But if the OP can get his off, that's great news.

      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!😁
