Re: Homemade 4X4 Articulated Tractor

so how does that work do you have 1 rear end running backwards or do you flip the crown and pinion some how , have an old army truck would like to do that to to make a loader think it would work [email protected]

Re: Homemade 4X4 Articulated Tractor

The rear ends are just turned to face each other, the same drive shaft rotation turns one differential as though its in reverse and the other is forward. The crown and pinion aren't as strong running in reverse because the teeth mesh on the angled tooth face instead of the flat. It doesn't seam to be a problem. How often do you see a vehicle break a differential because they were backing up?? Never!!
