Hello James , You can do what ever you want with your tube but as I said before it will not work , it is a very common problem with Diesels it will just break again somewhere else if you were X-RAY your tube you will see it full of tiny cracks just like shattering tempered glass from the harmonic vibrations of the Diesel engine . I have 30 years more experience than you will ever have with these transmissions and my simple suggestion is just get one from a gas engine transmission and end the problem if you want to add the rubber hose to a new one go ahead . As far as spline concept you do not understand the difference in surface area just as John Smith has said in his post down below it is not made to be as strong because it is mechanically impossible . As far as the 6 point or 12 point sockets go I said no such thing you should learn to read first . You can strip a 6 point bolt head with a 6 point socket but it is much harder to strip a 12 point bolt head with a 12 point socket and that is why it used in the Aircraft industry , and WHY because it has more SURFACE AREA with 12 points rather one with 6 points , just like a fine spline shaft is stronger than a coarse spline and will wear longer because it has more SURFACE AREA , so regardless of your impending degree or my 30 year old degrees you need a lot more real world experience before you can re-engineer this transmission better than the original engineers did or think you know more about Aircraft fasteners when you have never turned a wrench on an Airplane . And yes , I know John Smith and have talked with him extensively , I like John Smith and John Smith does excellent high quality work and I am sure he explained the differences in splines to you also even though you failed to share the knowledge with other posters who do not know the difference , my explanation of splines and bolts has nothing to do with his work it was for your vague and misleading post . 50 hours a year is considered show tractor hours especially when these tractor were used to getting 10 to 12 hours day when new , I just put 50 hours on my 1962 841 in 4 days on a job almost totaling 7000 hours now and it only had 2900 hours when purchased in the 90's . So I also have few more years and thousands more hours of seat time(two of my tractors account for 9000 hours alone) on these tractors than you do and about 30 years more experience repairing these tractors and 27 years owning Elwood Engineering Co. (ELENCO) building and rebuilding and making parts for the Four Wheel Drive front end kits for these tractors . My advice is because I have been there and done that and have tried to do it as good as or better than the factory which is not easy or cheap . Thanks Tony
