I got an 1194 (DB) with the right brake starting to chatter a lot, so I pulled the final drive. A little oily, as I suspected. Put new linings on, no problem. But how do I get those seals out?
There"s two of them set together (guess they really didn't want that to leak) sitting in housing, the seals are installed from the back of the housing, so it"s obvious the housing must come out to replace the seals. But I can"t figure out if it"s threaded in to the main axle housing, or it"s press fit, or??? there"s two threaded hole in the flange, but they don"t look like they"re made to be used a jack screws. I"ve had a puller on it an pulled as hard as I dared - nothing. I tried to thread in screws and use a bar to turn it it - nothing. I"m a bit baffled.
I may be just not using enough force, but I"ve used as much as I dare without knowing for sure exactly how it comes apart.
Anyone got any hints?
