If memory serves me right (that doesn't usualy go to well) this should be a seal that can be changed from the outside IF you can get the hub off. Sorry I do not have the part number but getting the hub off can be a challenge.

HERE is a manual that will help. I know it is for a new tractor, but the final drives are the same. What you are looking for is in part two.

That seal is for where the differential connects to the final drive, if I am looking at the diagram correctly. I can't find the seal that is leaking. I will keep staring at the picture... hopefully I find it!

Yes, but I am starting to get confused on the location of the leak. Could you take a picture?

I have been thinking about it, and I think you will have to remove the entire final drive to replace that seal.

I agree with Ryan here. That leak is not where I thought it was. I'm afraid you have a bit of a project ahead of you.

I have a leak in what I think is the same spot. I contacted "Mission" about it and was told that unless it is really bad to clean the outside and swab it with silicone, Changing it is a BIG deal as it is a pressed in seal.
