When replacing the pinion shaft & brake drums on a '39 model B, what is the best way to put the drum in position? Can it be heated in order to slide it on or must it be pressed on?
Also, is there anything special about installing the oil seal on the pinion shaft, such as the way it faces? I ask this because the seal on mine was gone when I opened it up. I'm suspecting that the people I bought the tractor from had done a fast repair on the final drive at some point & left the seal off.
Any help is appreciated.
