Worked on the Speedex today and got the Bull gear and axles in now. Went better than I thought, cept lifting that darn heavy gear cover up and holding in place, not messing up gasket and silicone I used, etc. Needed a third hand to put in bolts, but no one else home, so finally got it. Here's some pix of it.

My question is there a seal in that cover the axle goes thru, because I sure had a lot of dirt in mine.It seems too open for debris to enter.

Note in my pix there are two tins in halves that overlap quite a lot and are bolted with six bolts and wide washers. The also kinda flare out at axle. That is only seal there. There is an O-ring, way out on inner axle, next to threads that must be to keep oil in housing from leaking out past that same axle. Even the top drive gear has NO seal or room for one. It just has a tin cover and big washer behind that to keep out the dirt and hold in the grease there. NO seal on right long axle either.

I guess they never thought dirt would get inside. Mine is a M23 no sprocket the axle goes thru to other side with another bevel gear

Fella in tire shop in Ohio had just ONE 7 x 16 in Chinese brand that was offered on the PK forums. Then, I talked my Firestone dealer into finding another like it, which he did. BUT, when dealer got it in, was diff name and little diff tread. I used it anyway, have to look close to see diff. Was Farm King or something name on first one, and something else on other. Would have to look to be sure. Orig were 8", but these look good. Front's are Deestone ribs. I like the Deestone brand, have gotten lots of those.

This one has an O-ring, right next to the threads that hold the small outer axle on by gear box. Have to clean up the threads to notice if all dirty. Guess that's the oil seal for that axle. Good shots of grease on each end also hold in some liquids that might work their way out that way.

Yep it does help if i greese it up from oil getting out but i personally like my s 19 better cause its a 4 speed and on my s 17 i broke the axle twice and had to reweld it
