I know that I hav ea good sized rear main seal leak on my 63 Series III Gas D-17 Allis.
I read in the factory manual that it takes a two piece oil seal. My question is: Can I replace this seal bye removing the oil pan, then the rear main cap, fishing it out? Sure would save a "heck" of a lot of time.
Pleae let me know what you folk think

Check the archives- I think it was on here- where someone posted about using two plastic strips and some wire to fish it around the crank. I know that I printed out the pix of the whole operation.

Edpap is likely right on. However, I did replace the two-part rear seal in a series I D-17 one time without a complete split; oil pan & starter off , loosened frame to bell housing bottom bolts til it spread say an inch; removed spark plugs & put a shaft on PTO so I could turn engine over with a large cresant wrench ever so slowly. Small fingered friend worked seal into place as I slowly turned over engine. Did ruin one half-moon seal practicing! It ran for years with no leak afterward. Was probably lucky; the good Lord looks after dummies like me.

No I don't think you can do that. the lower half of the seal is in the rear main cap. if you don't get that seal in there just right it pinches between the main cap and block. and then this summer you will be doing a motor job. you need to split the tractor and pull the flywheel rear plate and the oil pan. Or if the clutch is not getting oil soaked, Park it with a bucket under it and keep the oil full and run it.
Good luck Ed

Today's Featured Article - Oliver 550 Purchaser Checklist - by Greg Sheppard. Pound for pound the 550 is better than anything I've seen. It has great power for its size and can really hunker down and lug. Classified as a 3-bottom plow depending on soil conditions. I personally don't think it can be beat for a utility tractor in the 40 HP range. They are extremely thrifty on fuel, at least my DSL is. Most drive train parts are fairly easy to get. Sheet metal is probably the hardest thing to ... [Read Article]
