I need a knowledgable person's advice on getting the final drive (right side) to this tractor fixed? All the bearings and three smaller bevel gears are bad along with the two connecting housings. The contact points (seals areas) between them is worn and knurled up, a little too much I'm afraid. I have it all torn down and believe I can do the gears and bearings but the housings are the problem. I'm very concerned I won't be able to afford the costs to do this repair! The prices I received from the Kabota dealer for just the gears/bearings is outragous! Now the 2 housings appear bad too boot! Can i get them built-up (tig welded) and machined to OEM specs? Are remanufactured housings and/or complete final drives available? If so - where/whom? Could someone please explain why and how to set "gear backlash" (using shims)? Thanks kindly
