Re: 3500 rear axle shaft pic for wear

I just had the axles out of my 2000 last fall to replace seals. The splines were shiny. Yours don't look damaged and I can see just a little burr from contact. Is the face on the end clean and smooth? It contacts the other shaft to control end play. Did you check end play before you took it out? The bearing will be loose until both axles are bolted up. Push the hub toward the axle flange and turn it to see it the bearing feels rough. Splines won't make noise unless they're wiped out, but then the tractor won't move either. Do you have differential lock? Internal or external brakes?

forgot to mention,
i have external brakes and the diff lock. i thought that maybe the diff lock was making the grinding noise, but with the backhoe and loader on, i didn't want to have to pull the trumpet unless i absolutely had to. thus the effort to change the bearing first.

The face end of the shaft is clean and smooth no galling or rubbing with the other shaft noticed. before i pulled the axle the end play was nearly zero, very little movement at all, although i didn't put a gauge on it, but i'd say.. a hair at best. the bearing feels pretty smooth when pushed up against the hub and turned, but boy is it loose. i pulled the axles in my dexta a few years ago to replace seals and don't remember the hubs flopping around like this, but then its hard to remember that far back. i'm going to put a new bearing anyway, its just i'd hate to put it all back together and miss the cause of the noise, and have to pull it out again. thanks
