I should have added this to my original post but oh well.
I broke the ring & pinion gear and 1 tooth on the right side final drive gear on my 1968 530CK and am trying to determine if the parts from this machine will work. The tractor serial number tag is missing from the right side of the dash. How else can I determine year of manufactureparts interchangeability (motor s/n, loader s/n, casting numbers???). Here is what I do know.
The above machine is gas job, shuttle shift with standard clutch - year unk.
Mine is a 1968 diesel, shuttle shift with torque converter drive.
A couple questions I need to answer are
1. Best case scenario, I split the tractor ahead of the shuttle and it bolts right up to mine?
2. More work but doable, take the thing apart and just use the gears that I need and rebuild what I have.
3. Worst case - differential parts are different and now I own two junk machines..
Anybody have any idea which of the three I'm looking at?
