Modifying Ford 2n differential

Hi. I am from Cuba and because of scarsese we have had to modify the Ford n series through years, mainly with old russian tech. So is pretty common seeing a 2n with Volga or Sector engine, bus or truck gearbox and all sort of innovations, in order to keep the tractors working.
That said I want to know if possible modify somehow the differential side gear( we call them satellite) to make it longer and hence give it a better 'bite' to the axe. Is possible to adapt another diferential that matches this or at least modify the side gear this way?

Hello kanonhian, welcome to the tractor forum.

Is your problem due to a lack of traction? Transmission gearing problem? For better traction you can add fluid in the rear tires, and wheel weights. You can also add a second rear wheel/tire (dual rear wheels/tires).
