Anyone know anything about replacing seals on older McCormick sickle mowers? I have a number 32, and the seal behind the flywheel doesn't really work anymore. It flings out whatever I put in the oil reservoir within a half hour of filling it. I can get the front side cover of that reservoir off, but can't see how to pull the whole shaft out to replace that seal. I can tug all I want, but it's obviously not going anywhere. My operator's manual doesn't mention that at all.
Looks mostly like this one: [img]http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/files/attachments/271864d1341272619-can-you-help-me-identify-dsc04855-jpg[/img]

Rustyfarmall has or had one like it. You around Rusty?

The left wheel bearing on mine is totally gone. Probably will need the hub and all. Mower bar is bowed also. Don't know if it can be straightened.

Hey Rusty! Yours is in better shape than mine, from the pictures you had earlier. Someone bent my main support beam once upon a time. Still works great though. Except for that seal.

That flywheel is 10 or 11 inches. Apparently you can get an 11" three-arm puller for less than $100 now. Probably cheaper/easier than taking it to a shop. That was a bear to get on my little trailer when I got it.

Yes, I am around, and yes, I have a #32, but I never did anything with it. It still sets just as it was when I drug it home. I probably should let someone else own it.

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. Not sure where I'm going to get a puller that big. Might have to take the mower to a shop for that. Most of the people I know come to borrow my tools, so I'm pretty sure they're not going to have one.

To get the flywheel off, you need a big 3 jaw puller. The one I borrowed worked great and stood about 24 inches high. It was intended to be used to pull combine pulleys and etc off. Before that I had tried heat and a two jaw bar type puller with no movement at all. When I used that puller it came of in 30 seconds. Replacing the seal then is a piece of cake.

Hmm. And what's the trick to getting pictures to show up?
