What is an approximate cost in replacing engine and hydraulic oil seals on WD? Lots of leaking at rear main; hydraulics or engine both I think.

Well I just replaced the seal in my 45.The seal was $8.00.I allready had the whole rear rolled away.I had the rear or the frame supported.I took
out the adjusting screws on the clutch fingers to give more room, sild the throw-out foward,removed the throw-out carrier tube and then the bearing.
I was able to sneak them out one at a time on the left side of the bell houising.Remove the seal with a drift from the rear of the bellhousing.
Now the easy part.Using a piece of threaded rod
and some odds and ends You can CAREFULLY pull in the new seal from the rear of the tractor.Try to find a washer just under the O.D. of the seal as not to damage it.Time and patience doesnt hurt.I thought this was faster than dealing with the engine and clutch housing.
Best of luck

The material cost in seals is probably less than $20. What hurts is the labor if you have it done. The front hydraulic seal is my bane. Leaks so bad I have to put a bucket (chistened 'Valdez III' for the number of times I've forgoten to pull it out before driving off) under the tractor as kitty litter can't handle the volume. Eventually I'll replace that seal when I pull the engine for a rebuild but since she's running so good right now, I can't say when that will be.
