New holland tc 40 4wheel drive not working.Drive shaft turns front wheels don't


check that the 4 wheel drive lever is in 4x4 application as the front diff will make the shaft turn when moving
if it is constant 4x4 drive , that leaves a problem in the center diff operation or a broken axle in the front end

I have a 1994 Chevy 1500 z71 I have replaced the front diff with the same gear ratio and know my four wheel drive is binding up and idk what is causing it to do that I need help


4wd vehicles in the main do not have 3rd diff in the transfer case (unlike all wheel drive vehicles) to allow uneven torque between front and read diffs to dissipate
that means that if you are driving on hard surface ( sealed roads ) there becomes what is referred to as a torque wind up in the drive train .This places all gears ,chains under extreme pressure and prevents gear changing ( shifting out of gear)
To overcome this problem, only select 4wd when driving in snow ,rain, mud, gravel or any surface that allows the wheels to slip and so even out the torque wind up.
If you had to replace the front diff that may have been the reason as front diffs are predominently weaker than rear diffs because of the way the teeth act on each other and the torque wind up will break the weakest part

Tractor case 585xl front diff not driving. Front shaft drives but not wheels.



I am thinking that you have a broken/ stripped drive spline on a front axle. If you have reduction gears in the hubs , it may be stripped teeth on a gear. If you jack up one front wheel and turn the drive shaft that wheel should turn. IF so repeat the procedure for the other wheel and if it doesn't turn like the other side then that is the side with the problem

Can a 2005 awd territory be driven on rear tail shaft only


With an AWD vehicle there is a diff in the transfer case that allows different speeds between front and read axles . If you have 4wd button (lever ) that allows the diffs to be locked for slippery /off road conditions then it can be driven with out the front drive shaft if you have it in 4wd. If you do not have that option then without the front drive shaft it will go nowhere.

2007 toyota hilux 4x4. Bad whining and vibrations in front end while driving. Feels like front diff trying to lock in. Any ideas. Taken to few 4x4 mechanics they say never heard of it before!!!


check the bushes / bearings that are in the end of the diff housing for shaft wear. Check the cv joints for wear. check shafts for bent . check front wheel bearings and adjustment. Check the drive shaft from the transmission to the front diff as they are prone to u-joint failure and excessive wear in the slip joint.

I am buying a 97 Grand Cherokee from a relitive . She had a leaking seal on front differintial and ran it dry . It started making alot of noise ,so she parked it . Gears got chewed up and the teeth are...


No!!!!!! Even though you remove the drive line the axle shafts are not able to disconnect from the front wheels. This means that every time your wheels turn the axle shaft turns and the ring and pinion and spider gears are turning in the front housing. If you tried this more than likely if not already the bearings may spin in the housing and destroy the housing that holds the third member gears. It will be a very costly item to replace the housing and gears. Rent a tow dolly and place the front wheels in the carrier or use a flatbed tow truck. Either of these items will cost you less money than destroying the housing.

Front diff. wont lock into 4x4. Transfer case is working. Vacume Dia. under battery tray is working. Could the shifting fork in the diff be broke


The cable from the differential to the accumulator should move somewhat freely. If it does not, then the cable may be froze up. You can lubricate it with some penetrating oil and work it to free it back up. You may have to remove it to free it up properly.You may find the cable shield towards the bottom end is broke off and the cable may completely be froze up, it's common on the Blazers. You can try pulling on the rod that the cable clips into in the front diff to disengage the front axle. If you cannot get it to engage that way, then you will likely have to pull off the passenger side extension housing to access the engagement collar and fork. If you cannot get it to engage by pulling on the fork in the axle, then you will likely have to disassemble it.

You will likely have to file down the leading edge of the gears. They should be beveled on the sides of the spline to aid in engagement. Hopefully yours is not chipped like the one in the front of my old S10. Mine chipped the splines on the axle and split the collar from being partially engaged under power

The right axle and has splines at the end of it. The Output Shaft slides into the carrier and has large teeth on the other end. The collar it has large teeth inside it that mate with the Output Shaft with the Fork.

The collar rests on the axle, the fork wraps around the collar. Then you push the 4x4 button or shift your transfer case into 4x4 it starts spinning the front drive shaft, which spins the carrier and the short shaft. Now your in 4x4, BUT the front axle needs to lock the right axle with the carrier. A switch on the transfer case routes engine vacuum to a diaphragm under the battery tray, that diaphragm pulls a cable which pulls the collar and forces it over the short shaft. Now your front diff is locked. When you take it out of 4x4 the vacuum switch closes and a spring pushes the fork and collar off the shaft unlocking the front diff.

The problem with mine I think is that the large teeth on the Output Shaft and the inside of the collar are worn at the tips, not allowing them to join together, and the more I drove it around with it clicking, thinking it would lock eventually it just wore the tip of the teeth more.

If that is the problem, You should not have to mess with the differential case. You should be able to get the passenger axle extension tube off, but it may require popping a ball joint, then disconnecting the CV shaft from the axle extension tube, which would allow you to then pull the extension tube.

Good luck and hope it's just the shift cable retaining clip in the housing that broke.

Front wheels will not spin


Jack it up all way away around and so all 4 wheels are off the ground and put in N ,now can you turn the back tail shaft and the wheels go round
Now put in 4WDrive can you turn the tailshaft on the front and if so do the front wheels turn,, if not then
Take out the front filler plug and see if the crownwheel turns when you turn the front D/Shaft.
If no then the teeth on the pinion have stripped
UNless you have a elect diff lock on front hubs.
If the F/ Crown wheel dont turn then drain the oil and check to see if you have metal in there. RON
