How can i find a replacement axle GT-14

Recommended Posts

Irhon

Title really says it all. Was pushing some loose dirt when my GT-14 wheel horse quit moving. Hydraulics still worked fine. I lifted the back off the ground with the lift and grabbed the left rear wheel when to my surprise I could remove the wheel and axle. The shaft is broke about a 1/4" past the beginning of the splines. When i pulled the axle a handful of needle bearings also fell out.

 

So now I'm searching for a new axle and have no idea where i might find one

Contact Lincoln at AZ TRACTOR, he has good used parts.  He's listed in the vendor forum here.

 

Another vendor Brian at K&B HORSE PARTS may also be able to help.

You may be able to find a good used axle, perhaps A-Z Tractor has what you need.  https://a-ztractor.com/  The rear axles from a "D" are a bit longer but have the same splines.

I messaged or emailed them hopefully one of them will have one. Which D series have the same splined 1 1/8th" axles?

 

Also thanks for the welcome!

Does the c-195 twin auto have the same axle spines?

D160/180/200 all have the same spline (should have) and diameter but are approximately 2” longer than the gt14 axles. The C-195 has an Eaton rear axle..... completely different setup.

Ok thank you, while looking through the 'hydro axles' list i seen the 15-7/8" x 1-1/8" diameter 109753 right axle  which is for the c-195 and thought maybe that would work too, oh well.

You could probably get a longer axle and use it but you would have to have a keyway slot cut into it and then just cut off the extra length.

You might need more then an axle.  Your axle broke right in front of your axle gear and maybe some pinions are damaged.  I'm going to guess those needle bearings you found mean you have the #111199 needle bearing and not the #1533 ball bearing holding your differential carriage.

Yes that was one of the first things i read before signing up to the forums :D

 

I must be missing something whenever i look up either of those part numbers they are both showing up as ball bearings, neither one of them are needle bearings

I believe the big bearing that the end of the differential rides on is B-348   WH#8048+3 in parts explosion

After looking at the picture I'm leaning more towards #4 on the diagram. Needles in B-348 look too big

I believe there is a service order in the manuals section that gives the serial number of the series when they went to the needle bearing.  It was because of availability of the ball bearing (1533).  You may or may not have it depending on that service order.  I only mention it because you pulled out needle bearings...they could be from your outer axle bearing??  Kay Sara Sara...you'll find out when you open it.  :occasion-xmas:
