As far as the axle seals, why don't you get shur- seals avail this site? and many other places. It saves a lot of work. You only need the one seal. Just pack some grease in and you are all set. You rarely need axle bearings. Directions come with. Chuck

what you mean by shur-seal? would you be putting the seal in a different spot?
a TE-20 only has one seal and the axle bearing in lubricated by trans/final drive oil, then there is a press/shrink fit collar against the bearing that holds it all in place and keeps the axle from falling out

I don't know why I was thinking you had a TO-30. I've read too many threads on here and I'm getting them mixed up...lol. You can use sure seals on your TE-20. A sure seal is a cone shaped seal that installs over top of the bearing and collar. The upside is you don't have to remove your collar and bearing to stop an axle leak,the downside is you have to pack the wheel bearings full of grease because they will no longer be lubed by the oil in the differential...and that really isn't a downside at least I don't think it is. I have sure seals installed in my TO-20.

Don't worry I got so much going on sometimes its hard to keep everything straight. I don't think that is a down side either. Where did you get your sure seals at? maybe a part# (If it would be the same) only difference between a TO-20 and TE-20 is the electronics I believe?

I have a TE-20 1949.
They are very different from a TO-20.
The TE is "tractor England".And the TO is "tractor overseas".
The English version uses imperial hardware, Lucas electrics and Girling brakes. The American version us standard hardware, delco electrics, and Bendex brakes. Although they look the same, almost nothing interchanges. Just like the Ford N series looks the same. I installed sure seals on my tractor. I bought them here on this site. Easy job. Use a PVC pipe to set the seals. I did the brakes at that time. Had to rivet new liners. Because parts are NLA.
