Cockshutt tractor design

Dave DeForest considering building an articulated tractor out of two cockshutt "40" rearends. If connections are made "coupling" each pinion shaft with two rearends facing each other will it be the right direction for each half and with one of the halves ring and pinion turning in the "reversed" direction from "normal" will there be a concern of wearing out early?
johnb It seems to me that one rear end will think it is running in reverse when your machine is going forward. It seems that it would function but you will have to make your own judgement about wear life. I also think you might have to swap the wheels on that rear end so that the rotation arrows on the tires point in the forward direction.
