Broken Axle Repair
"We had a little bad luck with our 350 Farmall last summer but we found a way to fix it in less time than if we had gone by the repair manual," says Leroy Staffanson, Sidney, Mont.
"We were doing some work in the field when the axle broke. We pulled it to the house about 2 miles away using a pickup and a pole to support the wheelless side of the tractor. Back at our shop, we cut a hole in the casting above the bull gear so we could remove the cap screw holding the axle to the bull gear. We then welded the axle, replaced it, and covered the hole with a metal patch bolted to the casting (see picture). The tractor was back running in no time."
