I decided to change the axle tube seals on the Big 10 today. Here are some pics of the process for anyone who is planning on doing it. An important tip is to cover key slots, snap ring grooves, and zerk fitting holes with electrical tape, so that you don't cut or damage the wiper on the seal.

You're welcome Trowel. Remember to go to the hardware store and pick up some woodruff keys or square keys to replace the old ones for your differential hub. My B1 takes modified woodruff keys, and the Big 10 takes modified square keys. I had to modify the ones from the hardware store that I bought. Bring calipers to the hardware store and measure what you buy. The lengths of 1/4" keystock was .005 undersize so I bought square keys instead, which were exactly 1/4". Here is a pic of my old worn keys, B1 on the left and Big 10 on the right, and here is another pic showing what I bought at the hardware store.

Yes, making hi-pro keys from store stock, got my high-pro woodruff keys (or shouldered key) from Ariens M10D snow thrower for the drive axle, forget the part # right now, usually always on the local dealer's shelf seeing as Ariens still uses the same key.

 

Same with the high-pro woodruff key for the BGB input shaft if you need to change out a worn out coupling,

    Ha got you all beat!!!!!!!!  I did that three times over the winter, I now have three tractor that don't leak a drop :thumbs:.  Good idea with the electrical tape, I put oil on mine and the seals slid rite up not to much trouble.
