Thanks for the replies. I feel that the shafts are the problem but the owner of the tractor doesn't so thats why I haven't done anything to the shafts yet.
I just want to do eveything I can to make the teeth as strong as possible. The gears were not ground after heat treating but None of these after market tractor gears that I have ever seen have been ground. Would that make them stronger?
What kind of heat treat would the 4317 steel require?
