Found this in the back section of the oil pan nearest the transmission, not in the oil. Most curious about the large e-ring. The small disc is roughly the size of a penny, it and the other ring were farther back up in the bellhousing. I wondered if maybe these parts were replaced at some earlier time and the old ones were dropped or left in there, it was driving fine and didn't seem like anything was amiss. The large ring appears to be broken to me. I don't really think the little disc is actually a part of something, it almost seems like a tab that's meant to be broken off, kind of like a knockout in an electrical box, if that makes sense.

That's the remains of an old starter drive (Bendix). Almost every N tractor has one or two of those inside the housing.

Dang, that's it no doubt. Thanks!

Hey by the way I need a new front drag link end and I noticed they sell one 1/16"th longer, what's that about? How do you know which you need?

The end of the threads on mine is crudely ground off at an angle to the point the castle nut won't thread back on, so it makes me think it was too long and was either ground off, or hit the front axle until it wore down.

All that said, I'm thinking I need the shorter one.

does it hit the front axle now? what i personaly would suspect is that someone beat it out one time and had to grind it down to get rid of the flaired end they made. i dont recall them being so close to the front axle that 1/16" would make a difference but i'll look when i get to the house.

that's what i was thinking is why would 1/16 matter. the thread direction and diameter is the same on both.
it didn't hit anything, but now that it's all taken apart it's not so easy to go back and see just how close it was. mainly it had a lot of slop so i wanted to replace them while i'm doing all this other stuff, and the threads are so buggered up i couldn't put it back anyway.

sorry i didnt get back with you last night,boss lady had to go hold the new grandbaby.shouldnt be any problem being 1/16 longer.on both a 52 8n and a 46 2n i have here both clear the axle an inch or so. before you screw it out of the adjuster piece mark your toe in toe out.supposed to have a indexing mark but sometimes they are hard to find under several layers of paint.
