Re: 2010 cracked rear axle remedy?

Thanks Hydronerd,

I have a guy who could weld it for me. I did find a 2010 that is not running and it sounds like the guy just want to get rid of it. Hummm, maybe I'll give him a call. I pulled the rear on my 345 in the past to exchange, this one shouldn't be any worst than that.......

Re: 2010 cracked rear axle remedy?

Hey guys,

This looks like the tube I need.

Is it as simple as pulling the right wheel and sliding on?

Thanks again

If you knew a machinist they could grind a bit undersized tube to an exact fit for you. The tighter the fit the better.

That is an internal transmission part. Its the spacer that goes between the large drive gear and the bearing on the left side of the case. You can see it here on the left side of the gear on the old tube.



Sliding this over the crack will accomplish nothing except to hide the problem....

Re: 2010 cracked rear axle remedy?

To use that spacer you would need to cut it lengthwise and weld on some nuts to bolt it back together.

If you're looking for something longer, maybe this would work for you.

I believe the tube is 1 3/4 in diam so it should fit.

Re: 2010 cracked rear axle remedy?

Thanks arathol, I wondered where that tube went.

Dee, thanks, I think the collars I have will do the same thing especially if I get one more and remove the zerk fitting. When I mic'ed mine it appeared to be 1 11/16. Thats what I ordered when I got the collars.
