    The problem is (now that we know it's buried inside a tractor) is the time
    (and money) to put it all back in.

    Just to take it back out in a little while later, when the new part arrives.

    Couldn't you rent a tractor for the season ?

    I worked for some years for a used tractor and dozer dealer.......every different kind of metallic particle in the oil told a story.....gritty steel was gears ,silvafrost was taper rollers failing,checked all the plugs and screens for bits of gear teeth..............then I would flush the housings,and put clean,but used oil in ......Any clean new oil was a red flag to buyers...I could easily deceive professional oil analysis...........And I was on a comission on every machine I worked on ...

    Something tells me they won't be putting in the new part until the used part fails.

    The used part was in decent shape. We had been renting a unit but at 30 an hour it wasn't practical for the long term . The units been running with no issues for 3 weeks now. Fluid has no metal in it. I would like to replace the shaft with a new one this winter. The shaft is ordered but I won't see it for at least another month.
