im working on my 1107 this week, Im pulling the who seat and fenders off so i can get to the rear end to do some work on it. It started to leak some so its getting pulled apart and gone over. im going to paint the gears that the chain runs on black because they are rusting. im goin to also check wat my gear ratio is in the rear end. wish me luck

Good luck with your rear ! Isn't that a Mopar rear in them ? Wonder if a possi was made for that model rear ?

I saw somewhere in my various Panzer pdf files that they specified pre '57 or '58 rear ends but I don't know if they used anything newer on the later build tractors like the 1107 Panzers and Meteors. Mine has the tapered, keyed axles so the rear has to be pre '65. I believe Mopar's Sure-Grip limited slip was first available in '58.

Please take some photos to document the adventure. Curious what the inside looks like.. but not really enough to pull it apart. LOL

Well, what's the plan, stan?
Any idea where it was leaking from? Sounds like it's around the pumpkin and not the axle ends, right?

On the front of the pumpkin around the bolts? Were any of the bolts loose?
