I need some WH information please

I really appreciate any help you folks can provide. I would like to get my tractor back in service.

It's my understanding that almost all of the WH units used the same rear end. The earlier tractors had a 3 speed read end called UniDrive. The transaxle you have was based on the same design, just with the high low range selection. As for a heavier tranny that would fit, maybe the Biggest D series used something heavier?
I am surprised the tranny gave up on you... These things seem nearly indestructible. Part of the reason there are so many survivors still in use, I guess.

That is a lot of stress for one of those rear ends to endure. Considering the diesel power, atv tires and possible weights? You also don't know what kind of life it had prior to your ownership.
I am curious as well to see what gave out on it once you tear it apart. Sorry I can't provide information regarding another rear that you could use.

This one may even fit yours. Once you see how they are made, you'll easily understand how it would still pull, but not turn. All the broken bits pretty much stay inside it and lock it up.

I have to put new pinion bearings in my pickup and Differential gasket on the C.C. 129 next week anyway so that's one less thing to tackle.

The one-piece pinions where first used in some 1972 tractor models with 4-speeds.
The earlier two-piece pinions had a gear on a shaft resulting in a weaker assembly.
I think the first 8-speeds with 1-1/8" axles and 8 one-piece pinions were in some 1973 models and the automatics in 1975.
Edited - changed years and
Some models used a brake drum on a different shaft further back on the transmission so the brake linkage is different.
Once a transmission leaves an original tractor model there is no way to identify what model transmission it is.
The 10 pinion differential with limited slip was not as strong as the 8 pinion because the gears are smaller to occupy the same space as the 8 pinion.
