I'd like to do this too. Has anyone replaced the seal around the drive shaft? I have a seal, but even when I had the transission apart I didn't see an easy way to get it out, so I left it alone. I added a little Lucas to the gearbox and it leaks a lot less now anyway.

The service manual does explain some of the installation procedures

Finally got the seals in and assembled onto the Tractor! :dancingbanana:

Here are the pics:

The big seal is the easiest to replace



Now It was time to put the dreaded small seal on. The reason it is a PITA is you have to drive the seal into the cast iron first then you have to play press your luck and try and not hit the threads and ruin the seal. After about 15 mintues of very slowly threading the seal around the threads I got it in place :yelclap:

Installed the bronze bearing and the steel sleeve. I made sure I greased it up real good so it would come off easier.

The gears are surprisingly good considering it was the model without the brake drum. I honestly don't know how it made it out of the testing process at the factory without having something to stop the drive shaft.

The flash from the camera made the gears look rusty but they really dont look like that in person.

I pushed it back and forth in the garage for a while and so far so good. The real test will come when I finally get to drive it!

quick question guys....the inside seal leaks on my 1050 where the hub/lug bolt holder is. When I replaced this seal before( this is the seal that is actually in the trans and then the hub slides into it) I tapped the seal in with a rubber mallet and then pushed the hub into the seal and to be honest it leaks worse than what it did. My question is...should I slide the seal over the hub and bolt the hub on and then slide the seal into the trans for it to seal? Most seals you slide it over what your sealing and it seals when the seal sits on the angle parts it has if you know what im saying....and when i put the seal in last time it pushed that part of the seal in rather than bringing it out like it would when say you are replacing a crank seal. I have a new seal to replace the one I have in now so any input is greatly appreciated....

I put the seal on first then slide the hub through the seal. I done it 3 times now and no leaks.
I use a plastic pipe about the same size as the seal and drive it in that way.

Got the tranny cover on this evening. I also put on my completely rebuilt driveshaft and clutch. All bearings and the sleeves in the pulley were replaced.
Its beginning to look like a tractor again LOL

I assume they were the correct ones as he probably gave you NOS seals.

Dont really know why it leaks even worse......
Guess you can always replace them again LOL
