My D14 jumps out of 3rd. took the cover plate off today and It's obvious what the problem is. The coupling part of the gears are worn. I have never worked on transmisions before, but have done some TIG welding and machine work. My question is this: is this gear material something that can be welded/machined? If it's hardened, can it be softened/rehardend? The guys that ground my crankshaft welded and machined the thrust plate. (I didn't think that could be done) Thanks, Trent

Welding a forged steel crankshaft and turning it back down to standard size or even changing the stroke is and has been common for a long time, they aren't generally hardened. Gears on the other hand are very hardened and haven't heard of anyone welding on them and remachining them. I would expect they are made of special alloys that when are hardened are either difficult to impossible to unharden. Even if it was possible you are talking a bunch of time to do this work, might be cheaper to buy a new gear if available. I have seen parts available for your tractor tranny don't remember what gears but did think some of them were available.
Good luck

Today's Featured Article - Pop's Tractor of Gold - by Gary Teate. My father was a simple man but could repair just about anythin mechanical that was ever made. From the time I was a young boy growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I would spend a considerable amount of time helping my father repair or rebuild equipment and engines, etc. on our 2 1/2 acre "spread". Pop always dreamed of having more acreage out in the country where he could retire and tinker as much as he wanted and often reminisced about his boyhood days on his grandfathers farm in Montecello, ...
