The factors which affect the durability of highly loaded gearing at slow speeds are mounting, surface finishes, profile modifications, lubrication, and heat treatment. These were taken into consideration in designing the final gear drive for the current line of International Harvester large farm tractors. This paper deals with the treatment and evaluation of these factors, based on past and current experience and development work.
