So I'm trying to put a new seal and bearing in my tiller for my 1254 (and in usual fashion I don't have the model # with me). I got the sheet metal off and took the outside 2 tines off when I thought, lets see if I can just get away with replacing the front bearing and seal instead of everything inside. I was looking at the front shaft, and got a bit puzzled when I didn't see a seal there, should there be? Also, is there a way to pull the bearing out without splitting the case?

Is this for the tine shaft or is this one for the PTO drive shaft?

That is a seal still in there (1185687) Usually you can put a few sheet metal screws on those seals and get them out with a Driver or mallet

 

 

The only way that bearing can be removed is with a driver or bearing puller both will require the inner shaft to be removed so you can get at the bearing

 

Directly behind that seal in your picture will be a retaining ring holding the first bearing set in place, there is another bearing behind that as well

 

here's a video i found for you

So basically there's no way to take the bearing out without splitting the case, right?

You may be able to get it out but I cant say for sure, if you remove the snap ring behind the seal it may come right out, but there is a rare that will need to be driven out as well.

I did not split the case when I did mine. You should be able to pull out the seal like bolens 1000 says.

I have a machinist right down the road, he'll have a way to do it if possible. At least it's not pressed in.

Yes, I do stock those

 

I would say the bearings are fine if the oil is not all cruddy and you used the tiller before. Generally these old Timken roller bearings in transmission like applications last a lifetime especially if in oil all the time.

My pto shaft vibrates really bad when there's no load on the tiller, would that be a bearing?
