NO REALLY!....It's cheap!

So I step on the wheel-brake and spin my 4440 around...and hear a POP..and a CRUNCH!

Hmmm..the 4440 spins and executes the corner as planned...but 'clicks' it's way back down the field....she broke...:mad:

Right-hand final drive sheet-a-cog....I ain't mad...She's got three-bazillion...two hundred and twenty-three zillion-two hours on it....{plus new cab interior!..:eek: }

JD wants $5000 for the housing(less ring-gear new)...I did not price further.

I did scrap-yard me some decent gears and a sound housing..and purchased about a thousand bucks worth of new bearings, races, seals, shims, spacers, etc

My wife asks why I didn't buy a new tractor?....Well I didn't want to spend a quarter-million dollars is why...I feex-it myself!

Good job ;).

I always start with new pricing then work from there also, gives me a good benchmark. Google is a good friend when it comes to searching for parts :).

So why did you have to buy a housing? I'm not there, so I have to ask is all. I had to replace the housing on my ol' 4840, but not the ring gear. It worked fine, but I had heard of some that were either assembled without the dowel pins or something had happened to the dowels and the ring gear had spun in the housing. Is your housing junk too?
