MinnesotaFarmall Posted May 8, 2020 Share Posted May 8, 2020 I believe I have a ring and pinion problem with our 1586 mfwd. I was disking today all was good when sudden the tractor stopped and just the front end was spinning. I tried every gear in every combo, but no avail. Only the front end will move the tractor around. I got it home, with no grinding noises or obvious metal in the rear end dipstick. Now, I believe that it has something to do with the ring and pinion because if it was anything in the trans, the front end would not pull it around. The transfer case for the front end attached to the rear end housing right inside of the saddle tank. What about the planetary gear sets? Would they act like the old manual lock out hubs on the Ford pickup trucks, where if one goes bad, all of the power goes to it, so therefore the other side doesn't turn?
