The Hub that holds the Bearing and the outer seal needs pulling off the Shaft after you have drilled the collar and removed it. Can be hard to remove and pressures in excess of 25 tons are often required. The Bearing should be pre-packed and then checked every 12 months and packed again. If you don't do this the Bearing wears and causes wear on the Oil seals. But the seals get hard with age and crack as well. The End Float in the Rear Axle needs adjusting when you replace the Shaft. If you need the information for carrying out this repair, email me...John(UK)

The outer seal on your later type tractor is to keep grease in and dust out. Usually if you repack your bearing with a good quality grease and fit a new inner seal it will suffice. Reuse all your old shims and then check for free play by pulling the shaft in and out. This is trial and error, removing one shim at a time and tightening at least 3 bolts until it is set correct. make sure, when you are happy with the lack of in-out movement, that when you turn the axle the other side revolves in the opposite direction, if both turn the same way then the axle ends are hitting in the middle and binding. If this is the case you need new bearings. Sam
