Well my rusty one is running but leaking out of one of the rear axle seals.....I pull off the hub and there is a felt ring on it...........so I pull the hub off of a donor transaxle......and sure enough ...same "seal"....

So what do I replace it with?????

So I get more felt 'seals" ?? All we have around the house is Xmas felt....greens and reds and I don't think thick enough for this job. :blush2: So I am thinking cutting the Xmas Stockings is out of the question.....

This felt thing is more of a wiper. The true seal should be behind the ball bearing. The true seal is part S2700.

Darn......so I got to pull the whole transaxle and take that side tube off to get to it?

I just spent about 30 minutes filing down the axle where the previous owner had used a hammer to try to get the hub off.......it was somewhat mushroomed by the time I got it... had to file down the axle and regroove the threads.......finally got it where the nut would go on!! This is the one I was having a hard time pulling the hub......bought a 6" gear puller (my other was smaller)......hooked it up and it came right off ....did not even need to use the heat!....

Glad it came off of there that easy. Those can be a misery to deal with sometimes!

Good to hear you got the hub off. My experience, felt is just a dust protection piece, gotta be something else in there.

Scott, I never wrote it down, but I have a tube off a transaxle & it "may" have the seal intact enough to read. I know the bearing was shot though, so the seal may be damaged beyond reading.

I am trying to write down all the bearings and seal numbers as I go for future reference

On these old tractors, I usually just take readings with a dial caliper then order seals according. Lots of these older seal numbers aren't good for crossing anyway.
