Did you look at the sealing area good. Apparently there is a problem with breaking axles in them. There are several Gs in my area and about everybody has found at least one that was broke. The last one I restored had both been broken. It was at the sealing area. They had to much run out, and was way to rough to seal. We ended up building them up and turning them back down to spec to get them true. Lee

Turns out that upon careful inspection, I see that that the right real axle had indeed been broken right at the location of the seal. There were two tell-tale signs of the break. 1) Bluing from heat generated in the weld repair of the axle and 2) the weld had been ground down to be smoother than the original machining marks and likely just as true as the original axle. Nice repair job! As they were prone to breaking, it's a wonder that they survived with a weld job. Maybe users quit doing whatever it was that was breaking axles, like probably using wide tread settings.

Have you got it back together yet? Just wondering if it is going to seal this time with the new seals or if you will have to true it up to get rid of any run out. On the one I did it will still drip occasionally at a certain spot when it sets for a long period of time. It is not enough that I am going to take it back apart to try to fix. Lee

I just discovered I've been trying to use the wrong seal, 11800 and it's for a 1.188 shaft. The shaft is actually 1.25 so it needs the 12456 seal. I just took a poster's word for the correct number. I guess he was having a bad memory day. I should have checked it out. Shame on me!
