One of the new axle seals got a slow leak so I can I need to replace it again. Maybe wait until I change the oil again after running it .

New seal? maybe it has a piece of debris in it? I have cleaned debris out of seals before using a business card. You fold the card over the axle  and insert it in between the axle and oil seal and rotate it around. That will often clear the debris and stop the leak. If the seal got torn from installing it then it won't help any.

Got one of the front tires on but it looking like I'm going to need to get some starting fluid to finish the other one. Rear tires are getting the tubes put in next.

Here is the fluid coming out yesterday 

 

That's definitely water. If tractor had been allowed to set a while the water would have separated and settled to bottom. With boat motors we see clear water come out ahead of the oil if motor has set a while.  Some weird lumps coming out as well.  Could use a shot of penicillin. :D
