Pictures please. Before anyone can help, or provide advice, they'd need to know what axle you have. There were 3 if not four type axles used.

I can tell you from experience the FNH site will not show a parts list or diagram.

I have a 4000 with the Schindler axle, and while I have found parts, there is no list, and no diagram. Parts are parts, either SAE or Metric.
Good place to start is what kind of hardware bolts are in the axle. SAE or metric?

Thanks Wayne for replying. The hardware is metric. I will try to get pics. THe outer end of the axle is flared out with a bore through it that a pin is inserted. the ends of the pin are stepped down to go in a universal housing, well hope my pictures come through.

My 30% response is that it is a Schindler. The knuckles look like a schindler, and the axle. So I am 70% unsure.
Bad news is there is no "source" for Schindler parts, other than wrecking yards. Good news is that the basic stuff and hardware is available if you compare and find it. I am in contact with several Shindler axle owners who broke them big, and with skilled welders and machinist, and available repair parts, they came back to life or are coming.
Which part is broke?

This double u-joint had broke before, I made the two bearing caps that you see in the picture, one in it"s place and the other on it"s side. I found the metric ss pins that I used for needle bearings. As far as repairing goes I can machine a steel bushing and weld it on the end of the axle. The hard part is to make the bearing carrier which is to the right of hub ,below the axle and above the connecting pin that goes inside the axle. That piece is broke in half and made out of cast steel, type 17CrNIM06? so the bores that the connector pin goes through with 3mmx16mm needle bearings seams to be cased harden not to mention time consuming to machine. Because of it"s design I think there is not enough room to weld a yoke to the end of axle and use a regular u- joint as I seen on other axles. I would really like to find a tractor salvage here or in the uk if there is a place. please help! Bud

I am confused. The bearing caps, one connected and one on its side are components of the new U-Joint (if it is a $chindler) and if the inner axle shaft and the outer axle shaft are good, all you will need is the u-joint. My curiosity, is, is this the original style u-joint, and the replacment u-joints look more like the one's in the URL. I found in my research that the Schindler had a much better turning radius than the other designs, and the j-joints in your picture look like they flex well. Not sure the new cross-style u-joint turn as deep. I am curious if the newer u-joints are not the replacment. I of course would also buy new bolts, with holes in head for wire-lacing. So, based on the cap design, which mounting type do you have and what is the diagonal measurement?
Anyone else have thoughts on this?
