 I pick up a couple at the flea market, they don't come around often. Used one as a kid, kind of gassed me out. However as I get older I am beginning to see their worth

Yes. This I called a spur because it's in a fixed position. basically no backlash adjustment just back spacing. If I have that right. There sin't any visible damage to either one. I hope they don't need replacing. The ring is $500.

So, when you talk about the spur gear, are you talking about the pinion?   My tractor doctor would never replace a ring gear without also replacing the pinion gear at the same time.  Both of them will be stressed to the max if they are not matched perfectly and allowed to wear in at the same rate.

I talked to the local JD dealership and Hoye which is the yanmar parts dealer. Both agree this wasn't caused by over loading. Hoye thinks the parts were not completely pressed together leaving a little wiggle room in and out. JD thinks there was a misalignment of the gears causing excessive force on the ring gear. ( by moving in and out?)

I think I'm going with JD on this one. I didn't paint the ring gear and check the wear pattern like you would with a car. I replaced the shims with new matching shims.  They also questioned the bearing on the spur gear but that is also new and there is no play there.

The outer housing that cracked is a dust shield sort of. The new replacement doesn't even have that piece and I was assured mine doesn't need replacing. That saves me $250. New bearing on the way. I still have shims from the kit I bought last time.

In this second picture, you can see the bolt sticking up. That is a mounting bolt you use to press the housing off the knuckle. That flat surface between the two holes on each side of that bolt is the shim area. The shims connect two bolts and there are four of them. 8 bolts total. Now I'm wondering if one of the shim stacks was way wrong. The shims are thin and stick together. you think you have one but it could actually be 3. 3 thin match one thick.  It's too easy to mix them up.
