today when I was harrowing my field my 1948 AC B did something I didn't care for. I was turning around at the end of the row when I choked it down. After cranking it back up I put it in gear the left rear tire acted like it didn't want to go forward but the right one did. It would work in reverse then I heard a clunk I tried it again in forward then it worked fine the rest of the day. Any ideas about what might have happened.

My guess is that it is in the brake. The clicking noise people are talking about could be a loose hub on the axle, unlikely though.

mark, i bet the brake locked up. if you want to be safe, raise the rear alxe on that side 2 inches and roll the tire by hand forward and reverse and listen. see if you hear anything. if not, it is probley o.k. Dave, i think you have a nick to chipped tooth on the bottom big gear, thats why you hear it once per tire revolution. jack up the tire a couple inches, roll the tire and listen, i would take off the sheetmetal pan below the final drive case and look at the gear. Bet you have a chipped tooth. You might be able to polish the edges with a small grinder wheel and forget it. use 90 we gear lube in the final drive, takes a little less than 2 quarts. change the other side while you are at it. thats the bearing lube back there.
