My 10 diesel has a bad axle seal and is leaking. It has a quirky 2nd gear detent as well. So rather than just putting seals in it, i was thinking of building an JD axle core I have here and swapping the limited slip out of a 12 hydra rear if thats possible. I'm curious if anyone has ever swapped a JD peerless rear into a MF 10? It looks identical but maybe there are minor differences?

Does anybody know a cross reference for the john deere M40676 axle seals?

Here is a post I just made. The axle swap I am not 100% on, but from what I see everything is the same. I have the numbers for the seals in this link. Good luck http://gardentractor...ed-on-many-gts/

Do the transmissions have a Peerless tag on them. The one on my MF8 has a tag with the model no. If those match you should be good to go.

None of these have tags on them, but they look identical externally.

As long as the input shaft, brake etc.. are the same then you are good to go. :thumbs:

In addition to what Chris said - The shift lever would be something else I'd measure up to make sure it would fit.

My MF10 diesel has had a JD transaxle and shifter in it since the day I acquired it. the shifter fits fine. I put a 67-72 chevy truck 4 speed knob on it. The axle tubes are off of the original MF10 axle... for some reason.

FWIW, I bought an original MF shifter off of ebay a while back, the MF shifter is actually built heavier than the JD one.
