The challenge is that this is pressed on so hard, I'm having to tap the axle lightly out of this fitting. From what I thought, these are suppose to turn and give as the tractor turns, but there is no way this would happen with this wedged on as such. I had a solid axle prior to me taking on the project.
The manual reads:
Adjust traction differencial within the R.H. rear wheel hub. Adjustment is made by tightening the two capscrews within the R.H. rear wheel hub to 20 ft. lbs.
CAUTION: Maintain 20 ft. lbs of torque on these capscrews. Under torque will allow excessive wheel slippage under slipper conditions. Over torque will cause hard steering due to lack of differencial action.
Well so far I've disassembled the unit completely. I can now see what the nylon bearings look like. They look in good shape and the nylon plugs look in good shape. So next it's picture and assembly time.
This is the unit assembled; need to double check how the washers and all fit into the differencial unit next. This is the way it was assembled prior... I think!
Need to double check wether gear X is reversed or not. Any ideas? Feels like it will work. I compared another older axle and instead of the gear having a cylinder area like this one, the older axle had big washers with a cutout for the keyway (part U). Assembled like shown here:

One thing to take note is that "U" the drive key is not just the standard "go to your hardware store key". I was able to find one stuck in the differencial (fortunately I found it before the differencial locked up.) Then I was able to steal one from an extra transaxle I had lying around. All back together, tomorrow is tuning and load up the weights, chains and plow time... hopefully not all in the snow!
Here are the parts I've been working with (minus the two drive keys):
This is the nylon plug (part R NLA):
This shows the nylon bushing (part M - NLA) which is pressed in by the nylon plug to create the friction needed for the posi-traction these tractors use:
