    Default '79 ford 1700 4x4 front axle snapped

    hi guys...we broke the left front axle at the hub(common problem?).found an updated axle(better,stronger,faster?)for 1200 but since money is an issue(when isnt it?)i was curious to know if anyone here knows of a replacement axle.
    will have to bite the bullet pretty soon as tractor is stuck in field.hehehe....but thought id take a chance and ask around.
    thanks in advance : )

    Will a 1200 front axle fit a 1700?

    The update is the way to go as it is heavier and eliminates a problem of an under designed axle.
    You could try West Kentucky Tractor Parts (270) 462-2191 for a possible dismantled unit.

    Check with Rock Valley tractor parts, they have used and new parts, several new parts are manufactured just down the street, IN THE USA!!!

    All there used parts are, cleaned and stored inside warehouses. If they dont have it they will tell you were to find it.

    OK the question was posed ..will a 1200 axle work in a 1700? The original poster said he used a 1900 axle in his 1700. I posted a new thread asking if I could use a 1500 axle (or parts) in my 1700. No replies.

    CAN THE AXLES BE SWITCHED FROM ONE MODEL TO ANOTHER WITHOUT ISSUES??

    I am sitting on a good deal for a parts 1500 here but dont wanna waste my money if I cant use the parts to fix my 1700 or the entire front axle. The tire size is different and the parts book has different listings for the internal gears. I dont want to tear things up worse.

    Parts catalog shows the 1700 and 1900 share front axle/parts. The 1500 shares front axle/parts with the smaller 1300.
