I have a question. How do I get notifications of comments sent to me via email?

Other forums I have done it, no such luck on this particular one.

I think your e-mail program should let you know that. We only have a PM notification.

On the upper right of each topic, you'll find an icon box marked "follow this topic".  Click on it, then you'll be given a choice of how you wish to receive it.  Choose "instantly", then you will get an email notification right away when someone posts to that particular topic.

I wonder why the cap isn't shown on the parts diagram? How do I know what to use, and where to find one. Should I take the tractor to a machine shop, and ask them to look at the hole for their Profesional input? I really want to get this fixed, for good.

 

A machine shop could check (if shaft is pulled) to see if the hole is out of whack.  It might be possible to ream it, then install a sleeve without pulling the whole thing apart if they can create a catch pan of sorts to hold the removed material.  They should know the required interference fit needed.

  As to the seal cap, I've not had time to research it, but you might ask our forum site sponsors to see if any has that plug/cap.

Did indeed go to the machine shop, today.
They looked the bracket over, and decided to make a new one. This one will rest flat against the housing to hold the bearing in place. The guy ran his finger around the bearing opening, and found the root cause for the bearing failure. Out of site, around the top inner edge of the bearing opening........the steel is gone. He asked me to tear it all down, and bring the housing back. He will then bore it out, sleeve it, and the new bearing will fit into the sleeve, as it should. We worked on the tear-down today, and are ready to lift the gear housing and transmission out in the morning. I will add some photos, showing the progress of the task at hand.

You're working fast!  Yep, without backing, the needle cages can't survive.

A few pictures of the tear-down. Hopefully, these will help someone in the future. Waiting on some parts, then to the machine shop.

Wow, if that last photo is the hole it sure looks battered.

Yep, most definitely caused the repeated bearing failures.  When the machine shop finishes, it'll be ready to go!
