The rear axle looks like a go-cart type setup, just with a square tube over it.

I wouldn't be supersized if it was, but its very heavy duty, the rest of the tractor is made with off the self automotive components, wheel bearings were a GM item, steering system is all automotive components, gearbox is from some kind of car,

I found how to get the rear axles out, RH axle is a short tube and the LH is a long solid shaft and runs right through the diff and then through the hollow RH axle, a big split pin and washer holds everything together. I should be able to pull them out and wack in new seals and bearings.

 

I drove over to a friends place on it this afternoon, if you let the clutch out a little bit too fast the front wheels will come off the ground, and it dosnt matter if the engine is at idol or full throttle, I think towing a trailer on steep or uneven ground would be dangerous.

Well I removed the RH hub and found at some stage it has sheared both axle keys and some ding a ling has welded both gears to the shaft, I would have liked to replace the oil seals and fix the end float but I will just fill it with semi fluid grease and use it, it might outlast me. 

 

Oh it did have bronze bushes.

Put in the semifluid, man that has made a difference, its smooth and quite now, fitted a new ignition condenser and I had replaced the fuel pump with a B&S pulse pump but when the tank got down to about 3/4 the engine would cut out, and when I removed the pump the pulse line was full of engine oil, I put the mechanical pump back on and it goes better.
