Brown belly G-1000

I have heard that the early brown belly G-1000's were prone to rear end issues. We bought one this fall that has issues. Just got it running so we are trying to determine if the engine will go to another project or we will try and save this G-1000. After digging into it a bit we can see the ring gear has moved to the left (sitting on tractor direction) enough to not engage the pinion. Is this the typical issue and if so how in depth is the repair? Do the later G-1000's rear end parts interchange? It seems to me there was a dealer recall/fix back in the day but couldn't get any info trying to search it here on the YT site. Appreciate any help. It is a diesel and row crop version. SN: 30600624 I believe.

We had three G1000's. The diesel had been updated although I am not sure what the dealer update entailed. To mark the difference it had been repainted to the yellow belly.
The second one is an LPG tractor brown belly and has never given a rear end problem. Probably less torque on the rear end.
The diesel we still have is a yellow belly since it is one of the last ones made.

So if the rest of the tractor is in good condition I would say definitely repair the rear end as they have a low RPM high torque engine and with proper care it will give good service for many years.

The nice part is they don't have a lot of electronics which eventually fail and can be difficult if not impossible to repair or replace. Parts are available new or used in most cases. A lot of HP for little dollars and reasonable on fuel.

This one is in nice shape. Had 23.1x34 tires on it and the guy I bought it from put on 18.4x34's and the cast iron cone hubs for duals. Diesel pump was stuck on it but we had just rebuilt one for our G-1050 so popped that on it and she fired right up. Seat and 3 point was already off it and on a pallet when I bought it. If we get the rear end figured out will probably put o-rings in the scv and 3 point controls and should be ready for haying. We have a late G-1000 wheatland on LP but don't use it much.

Thanks for the thoughts. This G-1000 is in such nice shape other than the ring/pinion issue so I hate to not fix it. Will come back with more questions as we get further into it.

never had bearing issues on any of mine, but what we found out was the surface that the ring gear bolts to was never properly machined, was not level. Fixed it on two different ones and havn't had any problems just my experence

Was common problem. Heard once it started with bad bearings. Not an easy repair. Tractor has to be split and axles pulled. As with all ring and pinion have to be setup and changed as pair. Know of a new set.
