I am trying to pull the two halves of a sunstrand rear end apart.  I took out all the bolts and I got the two halves to split apart, but only about a 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.  I cant get the two halves to completely separate.  I am sure there is something holding it from popping apart, but I don't know what it would be.  I have tried turning the axles to see if there was a "sweet spot" to pull it apart, but had no luck.

 

Anybody familiar with these to know what I need to do?

 

 

Brad.

Did you look in our manuals section? There are several Sundstrand service manuals that you can download. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks Rick,  I looked at the sunstrand manuals, and all I found was for the hydrostat pump.  I am in need of spliting the rear axle(differential) apart.  I couldn't find anything in manuals for my tractor which is an Ariens S-16H.  Any ideas where else to look? or does anyone have info on this?

 

Thanks

I'm not sure, but I'd bet the differential end is a Peerless.

Looking across different spec sheets, it seems they used Peerless for the gear models. And Dana gt20 for the hydro models. In the repair manual for the 931 series, there is a section for rear. Not sure if that will help at all.

if you have the Dana reared on a hydro 931 series tractor let me know. JD used the same rear end on the early 300 series. I should have service info for that here.

Brad,

One of our members took the time to write the following article found in GTTalk Tech Tips.

It might help you out with the entire project.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress - with pictures LOL.
