Hello my dad has a 1954 farmall super M tractor. Recentely he was disking his field he said he heard a faint scrape/growl noise from under the seat then the tractor stops moving. We are thinking possible broken axle bet not sure. engine still runs but will die when putting it int gear. If this concern sounds familiar to anybody any help would be greatly appreciated.

HI, depends on how it sounds. It is the Gear box that controls the Gear. When it get's damaged it makes a noise as a sign that something is wrong somewhere. And when you select a Gear it will not be able to move it shakes the tractor a little and goes off...

But you might not be certain at this moment in time, depending on the sign it has been given before it started acting this way.

Also you can still check the axle belt.But i would advice you do a General troubleshooting for the tractor to be really sure where the damage is from and if it has damaged another part on the tractor..

Also make sure you check for low oil too,that causes a lot of damage to tractors..

Good luck to you.

Farmall a tractor runs but makes a popping sound thru the intake pipe. The tractor hasn't been run for many years.

Possibly a timing issue. Check the timing first. Also check the compression to verify both are within spec
