Two days ago while ripping hard soil with a box blade the rear end of my Jubilee pretty much disintegrated! Well, something broke inside and I managed to drive it in reverse out of the field which, according to the mechanic completely destroyed the rear housing & most of what was in it.

He told me that the pinion gears on those models are a weak spot, now I have no reason to doubt him especially since they specialize in repairing old Fords but hearing that broke my heart almost as much as hearing what it's gonna cost to repair my rig!

Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone else knew anything about this Achilles heel?
