Leon are we sure 12456 is correct. I want to order parts before I open it up.

Ted, I picked p the 12456 seals yesterday at NAPA. I won't have an opportunity to install them for several days, but they sure for the world look like the correct seal. NAPA was good enough to give me full credit for the wrong, 11800, seals I had then order. Because of the seal ring worn into the shaft, as mentioned earlier, I'm going to install two per axle so for sure one of them won't happen to hit that worn location. I also have four 12" long 5/8"guide rods made up to replace the axle housing studs during the shaft installation process. When the axle is in place, I'll remove the guide rods and replace the original studs. Twice is enough to do this job!

Fill the void between the seals with oil. The second seal will be running dry with no oil to lubricate it and wear out quickly.

Good idea. I'll plan to do just that, but why would this be any different that a double lip seal?

It's according to this site that I conclude that the 12456 seal is correct for the 1 1/4" shaft, 2" OD and 1/4" width.

Ted, Well, I'm sure enough that I have 4 of them on order. I can pick them up at NAPA at 2:00 pm tomorrow. I plan to use the idea of 2 seals per axle. I see no sign of repair/re-weld on the axle I now have out. I even wondered if the earlier tractors might have had 1 1/8" axles, then they made a running change to 1 1/4". My tractor is a '49. By measuring, it has 1 1/4" axles.
