Has anyone here done a rockshaft replacement on a 2210 before?

Mine broke on the right side where the lift arms attach.

What kind of problems am I in for?
Is there anything particular I should be prepared for?

Thanks for your time,
Donovan

Welcome Donavan.
I've not see that failure in the 12+ years I've been around various forum. The early 2110's had a problem with the rear tranny/PTO cover but nothing related to the rockshaft itself. It doesn't look that complicated, but a technical manual would be advantageous to have.

Here is the parts breakdown, is #3 what broke?

I will try to get pictures and description together soon.

I'm still in the process of beating it to within an inch of it's life. ;)

P.S. Yes, it part #3 in the parts diagram.

Did you remove the rockshaft assembly to replace the shaft? If you're lucky, it appears that you could simply slide in the new shaft while pushing old one. If you just pull the old one out, the crank (#9) and spacers (#10) will drop and you won't be able to get it back together without removal.

I haven't worked on the rockshaft problem yet as I am still clearing the blackberries and willows that are choking out the stream and pond that I am clearing out to hold more water for the cattle next year. It has silted in for ~7-8 years and since we just bought the property, this was high on my to do list before the rain hopefully starts this fall/winter.

The rockshaft is twisted off on the "passenger" side as you sit on the tractor.
I have broke many an axle on rock buggies that I have built over the years and this is a very similar break.
A neighbor was trying to help pull my tractor out and somehow the strap got caught under the BB that I had on for ballast and twisted the shaft.
I thought he hooked it up to the drawbar/hitch like I had asked him to, but I didn't catch the mistake...

Thanks for the suggestions, keep them coming.
I don't know if I feel comfortable just pushing the shaft through to "hopefully" save some time on the install. Although I do appreciate the idea and thought process behind it.

Has anyone done this repair before?

Thanks for your time,
Donovan

Here is the pond I am digging out

This is a picture of the pond I am digging out with my 2210 and FEL.
It has taken quite a bit of time, but I don't mind the work. :)

As you can see I had to take the BB off due to the rockshaft breakage, but it is still doing lots of work without the additional ballast.
It just takes a bit more patience and work to make it do what you need it to do.
