    Dammit. I think my rear diff is toast.

    Nope. I left it in Lo and it idled up against a wall. Now it won't go forward in Hi or Lo.

    Diff or the transfer case?

    Does it run in reverse?
    Can you push it and does the driveshaft spin?

    I can put it in N and push it forward and back, but Hi and Lo do nothing. I can spin the driveshaft no matter what gear it's in.

    I probably should've mentioned it's a tractor.

    Oh.

    True diff, or a spool?

    I haven't opened it up yet, but I'm guessing it's a true differential. It looks like I have to buy the entire assembly instead of rebuilding it. :(

    It's the yellow part with the gear selector at the top.

    Dunno man... might take some specialized tools, but I'd pop that fukker open and see if it can be fixed. Never toss a piece of hardware that can be fixed.

    I'm opening it tomorrow. It's all plastic inside, so I'm surprised I've gotten so many years of use out of it. A new part is around $30 delivered, which is about half the price of a new one. I saw a tip about cladding the stripped gears in JB Weld and re-forming the teeth. I need to keep an eye out for spares on trash day.

    No kidding. Metal gears would've prevented this crap, or a front shutoff.

    If I could buy a few new gears, I would. I've got a friend that might have some replacement gear ideas.

    Hey, not all of us can buy and sell aluminum bumpers on a whim. I think I'll soak in the hot tub and ponder this a bit more.

    I decided it's too late. Those wheels are sharp.

    In the woeful Tacoma thread, I mentioned how modern diesel cars still get a bad rap in the states because of problems from the '70s. How are they viewed in Canada?

    I wonder if the European influence has kept a steady supply of modern diesels on Canadian roads. People around me are fine with a big ol' diesel pickup, but in a car? Rare.
