Differential identification, help needed

Hello all, my first post here. I have a tractor snow thrower that is broken. The differential isn’t working anymore. At first I was thinking it was custom built using an old dodge differential or something similar but I haven’t been able to make a link with any model from the picture that I found on the net. I’ ll unmount the thing over the weekend in order to open iy

What is the manufacturer of that machine? It could be a unit built by them or an old Eaton or Ford unit. Most of the Dana/Spicer units had a removable ring gear cover. Your unit has the removable ring and pinion gear carrier "Center section" that is removed while it is still installed in its holder. I have seen many differential/final drive, bevel gear cases like that from years ago, it was just a ring and pinion set-up for a snowblower with no spider gears in the ring gear carrier case. Some old carnival rides used that gear case a long time ago. They were built by the manufacturer of the machine that it was used for back then, it was a simple design back then. Some old Ramblers used a set-up like that.
I wonder if that was a home made or custom made unit, it is hard to tell without knowing who it is manufactured by.
