So i finally got Dad's 1978 AC 917 hydro and not 30 minutes after getting it home, the axle tube cracked and ruined the axle seal. I was able to get new seals, but so far, I've been unable to locate a replacement axle tube. Does anyone out there know where i could find one?

welcome to GTT.

That's really unfortunate, about the tube. What

caused that to happen?

 

You could also try running a "Wanted" ad here in the classifieds.

I'm thinking a tube will probably run more than an entire rear end from a parts donor.  Plenty out there.

Everything on the tractor is stock, except for the engine.

Can one of you Allis guys give a rough idea as to what models might have usable parts for him?

I'm guessing but since no one else gave it a shot...I think any of the 70xx or 71xx series Simplicity hydros,or the 7xx and 9xx Allis hydros would work for a complete rear swap as long as it has a Sunstrand pump. As for the axle tube I think one from any of these or the gear drive models would work. And a few other models might work too.

This post originated over a year ago, but since its back up to the top I will add this, I believe any of the tubes from the large-frame hydrostatic drive tractors will interchange regardless of whether they are on a Vickers or sunstrand machine. The gear drives use a totally different tube. New tubes are around $200 from Simplicity. What I don't like about used transmissions, differentials, or gearboxes, is often the wear and problems are not readily evident as they are often covered with layers of accumulated and hardened grease. You would want to clean the axle of grease and sand the paint off it with some emery paper and look very closely for cracks, especially near the keyways.

I knew it was an old post when I replied to it but the poster had been left hanging so I thought I would at least give it a shot. Besides we all research old threads for info,so the more info in an old thread,the better.
