420 Rancher drive shaft turns, but...

4009 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  shadetree go!
I'm the mechanic on a farm, so I haven't been driving it, but the farmer says it would "slip" now and then, but he never heard any grinding or scary noises.
A quick peek in the oil filler hole tells me the ring gear is turning.
I'm thinking stripped splines on the axle.
Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance

It could be your clutch slipping, it might just need to be adjusted or a rebuild, if you're doing alot pulling with it on the farm it be worn out
Because you said it was slipping so first thought was your clutch, and I would think to tear up spines on the shaft or gears in the rear end would take a lot. Sounds like you got though, good luck
