Rear Seal Leak

My D17 has a nasty leak from the rear seal. I am looking for some advice on the best method for an old timer to use to replace it. I have a manual, ambition, but am a little short on experience and equipment methods to split the tractor. I have a tri-pod that I have used in the past to hold the tractor up when I removed the WFE & pulled the wet sleeves to fix leaking "o" rings. Can the tractor be split to get at the seal without removing the WFE, as my tripod will be tied up with the engine and WFE? I don't have a hoist available for the tractor from the clutch hsg back so I will have build a rolling unit to get the tractor out of the way.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated, and I want to wish all you good AC folks a very happy and prosperous New Year!

Thanks Again Don Holden

Well here is how I did a B just a few monthis ago. The B is smaller but the same method should work fine I think. Block the front end to the engine or frame to keep the engine upright. Chock the front wheels. Build up a stable pile of blocks or some sort of support under the back of the engine. Use your hoist to support and hold the engine upright by taking a strain on it with a chain fastened near the top of the engine. Put a rugged dolly under the clutch housing and build a stable pile of blocks up to the housing. seperate the tractor from the engine and roll the back half carefully away. You need a smooht lever surface to work on. It isn't to hairy, not as bad as it sounds.
