Just thought of another possibility. If the 1 inch holes in the bottom of the axel tubes, below the brake drum and bands, is clogged with dirt and stuff, rain/wash water may accumulate enough to get past the seals between the brakes and final drives.
Tarping is a pain, but it will avoid other various water caused problems. I could list at least a dozen other things where a bare B, C, CA tractor takes a beating in the weather.

Most likely condensation. It's the pits when you let a tractor set for a few weeks in sub-freezing weather, then go to use it and it won't move because condensation has settled out of the gear oil and frozen in the bottom of the case.

Happened to me twice, once on an H Farmall and once on a VAC Case.

If the tractor spent it's life in the east, with the high humidity, it may well be condensed water accumulated over many years. Every old tractor that I have dealt with had some water in all the gear cases, from a few drops to quarts. Also, if someone forded deep water, or stuck in a creek somewhere in it's history, the water may have seeped past the axel seals. I always drain and flush all gearcases on old tractors as a catch-up mantainance, because most old farmers were pretty cheap when it came to lubes.

thanks for the reply. the person knew water was getting into drives but didnt know where from. i drained them today and there was as much water as gear oil. so i removed the covers and cleaned it all out i guess ill just have to tarp until i figure it out. i also drained the fuel tank looks like somebody did a bad relining job pulled a 8" square piece of lining that was floating around. quess thats next on my list.
