    international 1055 project

    i decided to strip out the 1055 i bought to see what was wrong with the pto, the gearbox front casing has been eaten away where a bearing should be, i have located a new casting, and shaft from martin o hara in ireland , should be here early next week. thought i would strip the rest of the back end out to check the condition of the rest of it , and fit a new half shaft seal. all looks good, its even recently had a new clutch and flywheel, new hand brake band and hub which have never been set up correctly so aint been used!! i though i would share some photos for a bit of interest as i progress with it.

    Now you've got the old girl this far, make sure you check the diff pinions. We chewed them out of the one we had. Made hell of mess. You'll get a good idea by the amount of crap in the bottom of the diff housing.

    yeah, i was pig sick worried when i saw that collapsed bearing that she had been run low on oil, had one once before that had been run dry in the ass end cos the owner did not realise the tranny casing was seperate from hydraulic system, seazed the pinnion bearing and spun it in the casing then chewed up the diff. ended up breaking that one for parts. the diff and pinnion in mine are all good thank god. still waiting on my new front casing coming from ireland!! very slow!! good job i aint desperate for it. pto bearings were all loose so yesterday i replaced the tapered bearings and re shimmed them to make sure all is well.had a look at the brakes and they look about about half worn?? so they can stay for what its gonna do. got a turbo for her now so should have some serious grunt when all back together!!

    did you manage to repair your diff or was all lost??
