    2305 driveshaft

    I have change the drive shaft spider on the drive shaft that goes from engine to houssing.

    Those les then 10 hrs, but there still a little vibration.

    I have manage to found that there is a little play between the yoke and the spliced shaft on the houssing,

    My question is, is it normal to have a little play there?? If yes how much is consider to much play???

    My 1025 has 85 hrs on it and has a small amount of play in the yoke / splined shaft. I guess it depends on how much play yours has whether it is causing the vibration, you've replaced both u-joints? Is the yoke new? On my 316, which has the same design with the yoke and splined shaft, my original driveshaft yoke was hopelessly worn out causing severe vibration. However, the splined shaft is VERY hard, and itself was not worn. If you have the original yoke, a new one would probably fix the vibration.

    Mine has just a detectable amount of play, very slight, when I wiggle it by hand.

    Good luck!

    My 1025 has that issue on the 4x4 front splined shaft. Guess a new yoke is in my future too, as I feel vibration top gear and there is a fair amount of play in the transmission yoke

    For what these tractors cost, the driveshafts are horribly designed. They should all have a yoke that bolts/clamps to the transmission input, and have a slip joint in the driveshaft. It's just a cheap, lousy setup that is prone to wear and vibration, and to top it off, no zerk fittings!

    I've been squirting gear oil into my splines. I now have a grease needle adapter for my grease gun, this spring I'm going to inject grease into those splines...one..at..a...time.
