Can anyone shed some light on why this would happen? Granted, the tractor was built in 1973. The trans fluid was at the proper level and I had just completed the axle adjustment an hour before. Plus I was mowing on level ground so not a lot of load there.

Not fatal just a bump in the road. We wear out and so does metal. Maybe a flaw in the machining of it or the heat treating process. I would call it metal fatigue. Think of how many RPM's that has made since 1973.

That looks like a nice tractor. It sounds like a gear is stripped in the trans though which is a common issue for the 6 speed transmissions.

I suppose this one could be closer. It's a 1050 without a motor - http://youngstown.cr...4666111469.html

The 1050 is a 6 speed guys, he needs a 3 speed.

 

 

These do break from time to time but not that often. Over tightening and not following maintenance on rear axle end play could be the culprit as well. Its 41 years old, thats alot of time to be abused/neglected.

Too bad you were not close to NH. Seems like there are always some gear driven Bolens around for parts. I sure hope you find one. I think you are best off getting a parts tractor with a good tranny then you have some spare parts.
