The only way to do it is to simply put the whole axle upside down. That is what they have done on Fordson Majors.

Ok but should it not be possible to simply turn the diff. Around ?


On roadless there is a extension axle for the pto ,
Do they also use that on selene , when the 4 wd box is not so
thick ?

the diff house is already sitting in the right side , but is
made for reverse driving (like on loaders)

The gears do not fit the other way in the housing. If the axle is from a backloader you have to put it upside down to get it right for a normal Major.

Ok but then the drive shaft will turn forward would it not ?

And the bracket for mounting will then turn down will it not ?

On the picture of the truck/lorry you sent , the sits in the right
side that is not possible on tractor .

With the two pictures you can se the diff at it´s original position on the truck it was designed for, and how it is the other way on the Major. The shaft is allways pointing backwards.
