It was necessary to remove both rear wheels and axles in order to remove the differential gear - this proved to be difficult because it was impossible to remove the oil shute that transfers the lube oil from the gear case to the differential housing - I had to resort to using the cutting torch after drying out the interior .
The oil chute is attached to the inside of the differential housing by two quarter inch cap screws - the screws are at the top of the housing and one screw is too close to the casting to attach any kind of wrench.
At re-assembly this was modified by drilling a hole in the casing below the chute hole - welding a bracket below the repaired chute and attaching the the chute by means of one quarter inch bolt and lock nut , This makes it very accessible for both removal and replacement .
Re-assembly of the tractor took approximately two weeks of off and on time - repairing broken studs - drilling and taping and a general clean up. Several knowledgeable people have commented that the MH 22 has a common fault in that the axles are prone to breakage .
I enjoyed working on this veteran tractor and discovering the simple but very effective engineering that was performed by Massey and Harris so many years ago.
