What a great site! I have an early 1970's Hahn lawn tractor built in Evansville, Indiana. The gear oil leaks out the axle tube on both sides of the transmission. My old 1975 Massey 12G had the same issue so I know it is common with these old lawn tractors. I know the Massey had a Peerless trans but I have NO clue what trans my Hahn has. Please help, I want to get her leak free!! :smile1:

I have an early 1970's Hahn lawn tractor built in Evansville, Indiana. The gear oil leaks out the axle tube on both sides of the transmission.


What model and series is your tractor? ......I have some Hahn-Eclipse manuals, and may have some info.

However, oil seals can be purchased through many mower shops, auto parts, bearing supply houses and power transmission specialists. .....If you have an old seal, new seals can often be matched by size or by numbers (which may be) on the seals.

If a seal leaks, it may be caused by a worn shaft, a worn bearing/bushing, or an old, tired seal.
