Well, I think I screwed up.
I jumped onto a Massey 14 sitting here for some repair work the other day, and after it got warmed up I went to cock the wheels to get out of the tight hole it was jammed into. I guess either the wheels were frozen to the ground (which was the case with my trailer and another machine I had to move) or something else was frozen up.
I heard a pop, and then the daggone steering wheel spun free.
I figure I busted up the gear box, since nothing is moving downstream from it, and maybe in the cold it had moisture in it and froze.
I haven't had the heart to look yet, but is there possibly a shear key or maybe something else simple that might have blown up on me?
If not, who has a good parts gearbox?
