So I got the motor out, it was much easier then I thought and the motor was lighter then I thought, which is good.  What I'm wondering about is the seal around the crankshaft.  It looks like it's going to slide down the shaft and off, I don't want to damage the seal.  Should I clean the crankshaft really well before I start pulling the bottom off?

 

Thanks!

 

Matt

It looks to me like there is a step down in the crank diameter so it would be a loose fit on the exposed part of the shaft. You should invest in a new seal anyway. Check JDParts.com for parts diagrams for your tractor. Do a model no. search and they should come up.

I agree if you are pulling the case replace the seal other wise you could be pulling the engine again in a very short time to replace the seal.

I don't see anything that says Seal in the diagram?  All I see is a bearing.

You have to look in the Cylinder Head and Crankcase diagram. I think Part 9 in the diagram is the seal you are looking for. According to the Canadian web site it's Part No. M124523- $7.33 ea. If you are registered with a dealer you can get pricing online and even submit orders and have them delivered to your dealer for pickup at no additional cost.

Seal is ordered, it was $6.35 at my local dealer.  I have to wait for it now though :(

 

The part number you gave was correct, I confirmed it.  Hopefully it's easy to replace.

 

Thanks for the advice,

 

Matt

I usually get parts in 2-3 business days from my dealer. I feel this is good service compared to a local small engine shop I have dealt with. They routinely take 3 weeks to get Tecumseh parts. I assume this is because they batch orders. I generally find many common small engine parts such as Kohler carb kits are competitively priced at the JD dealer.

Yeah it'll be early next week, I think they are priced ok as well.
