If you are going to change the seals on the back side of your brakes you will have to drain the rear end.The seals you will be changing are your on the differential side gear and master pinion.You can change them with out taking the pinion out.The 44 special had three different brake options.If the tractor has the live power take off system it will have disc brakes.You could also have the full band type or the double shoe type.If you have the brakes with the two shoes make sure you put the return springs back in the original positions.If you do-not the brakes will not function properly.What will happen when you apply the brakes it will pull tractor sideways.One way or the other.I made that mistake on the first one I put together.In regards to the snap rings for the shift rails your local napa dealer or any farm implement dealer should be able to set you up with some snap rings.Take the measurements of the grove on the shift rail.My manual shows the snap rings but it does not give the dimensions.Hope this is helpful to you.
