If gearbox is functioning in all gears and the planetary hi/lo is working I wouldn't mess with it. They are a strong gearbox and don't usually give any trouble. I have a newer 5hp Briggs on mine that works very well. It should be a good snowplow if you have wheel weights and/or chains for it. Have fun....Dave

The seals are probably "off the shelf" standard sizes that you can get at a NAPA. Be carefull, take pics as you dissassemble, and most important, have fun. Good Luck, Rick

I'm not sure if this helps, but I have a parts breakdown for an FB, with handwritten part numbers, I assume from a mechanic.
It has a seal number of 8051031, shown for the axle seal. This however, isn't shown on the FC parts breakdown, and there is a transition from the old numbering system to the new system, that must have been implemented between the FB and FC.
