  Hi everyone, my first post here. My Grounds Keeper leaks gear lube from the differential where the axle housing bolts to it. It looks like there is a oil seal in the diff case that I'm guessing is the problem but I can't find a source for the part (1718797).

 

  Any ideas on fixing this?

I would reach out to one of the vendors here.

 

If they can't get what you need, you might try taking measurements of the old seal and seeing if you can cross reference a match at your local auto supply.

Try to determine the manufacturer's part number on the face of the seal.  If you can't see that, measure the shaft diameter and seal bore diameter, along with the depth of the seal metal housing.  Either case, take the part number or the measurements to a NAPA store or an industrial bearing supply company and they should be able to find a replacement.

Unfortunately I do not have this seal in my system

I'd take it to a local bearing / seal house if you have one

Thanks for the welcome and advise. I did download the manual, and after looking at it for a long time I wondered if the gear lube was just seeping past the bolt threads. So, I removed the bolts one at a time and put Teflon sealer on them. No more leak! :dancingbanana: 

 Thanks again for the replies,

 Jim
