Well the kubota is back to work . Took a few photos because i have never worked on one of these before and thought it was a rather interesting set up . Its not complicated but its different then autos for sure .

Pile of parts that make up the front drive set up



This is Kubotas version of a unibearing



This gives you an idea how the shaft gear set up works . The bottom of the shaft there is another small gear the runs the ring gear on the unibearing .



Look its allllll more gooder :d:



Something the average auto guy never dicks with so i thought some may find it interesting . By the way , this thing uses udt 134 < hydrulic fluid every where except for engine oil . Seems alittle thin to me but what do i know .

This little project was due to the outer race on a ball bearing splitting in half . Perhaps a little to much load on the front :tonka:

That's about all I could think of for a response.

Take those outers and mate them to an other axle?
It would be very fisible to do . The orginal axel would have to be machined for that gear to slide on . I have no idea what there strength is . this is only a 23 hp tractor .

Some where i have seen a 4x4 using the hole front end out of a tractor before . Id think something a tough bigger like 50 hp tractor front would hold up .
