The Char-Lynn PTO pump that I have is a good pump and I have cleaned and painted it to the max, installed a new shaft seal. However, there is a leak at the shaft. Some of it may be at the tank seal, but it leaks more when the shaft is spinning. I know the company does not sell parts anymore but is there anyone out there with some good answers or sources. I need a really good seal. 1-1/4 shaft and 1-13/16 bore and the bore could possibly be machined larger. Thanks for any help here. ---Derrol in Texas---

Is there a groove worn in the shaft where the seal runs? If there is a groove then check if you can re-position the seal along the shaft to miss the groove. A double-lipped seal might contact the shaft in a new spot. Worst case for a grooved shaft you can install a "Speedi-Sleeve" (from Chicago Rawhide?) over the groove, about $20-$30 at NAPA, or any bearing supplier.

Maybe the new seal was damaged during installation or put in backwards.

Good luck.

Sounds like you have the correct info to go to a bearing dealer and ask for the lip seal for that size you stated.. goodluck ! chuck

Thanks Guys, I did not see anything wrong with the shaft, and I did install a new double lipped seal. But something is not quite right, so I will try again. I think there is room for a double lip and a single lip seal in the bore. I thought there might be a better seal system that I am not aware of.---Derrol in Texas---

Well I tore down the Char-Lynn pump again today and found a problem with the tank seal where it seals around the shaft against the pump. Didn't have the fat O-ring that I needed so I manufactured a brass spacer and gasket for the O-ring to set in, works good so far. The seal on the shaft doesn't hold pressure because there is a relief hole drilled between the brass bushing (inside the pump) and the seal. I did enlarge it to the next size, 13/64". Put it all together and haven't lost a drop of oil. Did some plowing for the first time since I went to Kansas and got the 4-bottom Case plow. Been dry here and that ground is hard and it comes up in big chunks. But the pump works fine. ---Derrol in Texas---

Today's Featured Article - Usin Your Implements: Bucket Loader - by Curtis Von Fange. Introduction: Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he rea ... [Read Article]
