To change out the bearings and races n the final drives on a WD 45?

When I bought this tractor the only thing in the final drives was old water. I cleaned everything up and had one side leaking after a week of light usage. Tore her back down to reseal the pan and found peices of chewed up bearing retainer in the bottom of the pan. So I would like to know how big a job this is to change out all the bearings and if anyone has an idea on the cost of the materials for the job. The tires are loaded so I wann hold off on the job until I have all the parts together to just R&R them Thanks

Use good square timbers to block up the tractor, take the wheel off, then the pan you mentioned. Biggest headache I remember is working upside down to remove a broken axle, and getting the snap rings off the axle. Snap ring pliers would be a big asset, but at that time I had none. Along with the bearings, replace the seals so you don't get oil leaks on the axle. Inside bearing cover snaps off with a chisel, hammer it back on like a wheel bearing cap. I & T manual is a real plus for parts ID and methods.

Today's Featured Article - The Fordson F Ignition System - by Anthony West. A fellow restorer contacted me earlier this year asking for some help and advice on a model F that he was restoring. He had over a period of months spent a fair amount of his hard earned cash on replacement parts for the old "trembler" ignition. Sadly though all his efforts seemed to be a waste of time and money as he still couldn''t get the temperamental old thing to run correctly!! If i said that this was a little frustrating for him that would be "conservative" in fact the problem had reduce ... [Read Article]
