Default 1929 Deere D, differential gears move when applying emergency brake

Had the transmission cover off today and notice when I apply the emergency brake the differential gear shaft and gears, I think these are the differential gears, move forward and up slightly (1/16") is this normal.

Your help is greatly appreciated,
Bruce

My '29 D does the exact same thing.I noticed it when I was flushing out the transmission.I believe it is caused by wear in the bearing quills of the shaft.Maybe the experts could chime in on whether it is a big deal or not.How noisy is your transmission?

My 27 does it as well. I've never worried as it doesn't get much use. I never looked but does it have Timken tapered bearings or flat roller Hyatt's in those early Ds?

It looks like a flat roller in the diagram.According to the parts book,it was the same in all of the unstyled d's.

I guess that the reason. Those type are never real tight and you cannot do much with them other than replace.
