Happy Friday folks,
I have a John Deere 68 lawn tractor (model A684G) who had destroyed its differential. The teeth are worn off the 4 gears inside the differential. The John Deere parts dealer in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area tells me that the parts are no longer available. I am hoping someone has a better answer. I put a new engine in the little lawn tractor a few years ago and it is great little lawn tractor that mows really well and has a really small turn radius. I would hate to have to send it to the metal recycler.
I have a complete axle and differential from a RER out in the garage. I'll get a picture and some measurements later tonight or tomorrow. Busy day and heading out the door shortly. If it'll work you can have it for shipping.
I have no idea what it came out of. I grabbed it for a project that I had in mind at the time, it never came to pass. It's 25"-26"s wide and the axle shafts are 1" diameter. The wheels are through bolted through the hub and axle stubs.
What diameter axle shafts does the 68 have? Maybe you can reuse your axle shafts and just replace the differential? :dunno:
