When my Bx22 is in 4wheel mode and under any sort of strain, even just holding me back as I go down hill, there is a sharp snapping sound from the front end. I can feel it in my feet as well as clearly hear it. It is very evenly spaced. It reminds me of a missing gear tooth or a slipping chain.

If on level ground in two wheel no snapping? If in four wheel on level soft (n not hard ground but soft so the front wheels can slip) ground does it also snap?

If it does not make noise in four wheel when on such as plowed dirt may be the four wheel drive system is binding and tractor needs to be in two wheel drive. Four wheel is not to be used unless the front wheels are able to spin as they turn faster than the rear ones.

But think only way you will find any damage is to disassemble it. ....

The snapping makes me think you already have a problem. This is often caused by an unbalanced drive line from tire diameters. When driving on hard surfaces can you engage and disengage the four wheel drive easily? If not this could be the better part of the problem. Your tire pressures are what can make it work easily or be a problem! To pick up the front end of the tractor with a loader after driving on hard surfaces do your front tires rotate? That will also tell you you have an issue of balance. ....

Problem resolved, thanks to the wife. She was watching as I drove up the grade in our yard and she said the shaft she could see seemed crooked. I had guessed that maybe we had a sheered off bolt on a universal joint. She took the guard off and found the universal was broken. It was missing one bushing or bearing, what ever is on the ends of the center 4 way. She ordered a new universal and I put it on. The fix took about 10 minutes. Good as new now. :) ....
