Removed the brake drums on a late model 3000 desiel tractor. Brakes have oil on them. There is a seal in the trumpet housing that is made of felt. It looks to me the axel seal on it to prevent the oil from getting past that point.Is that the seal that has failed or is there a seal in the outside bearing assembly. It looks to me the outside bearing has been packed with grease so does it even get any oil to it? I just need to know wich seal is causing the oil to get on the brakes

Not really an easy job. I did my 2000 for the same reason. Hard part is pulling the axle out of the hub. Easier if it has the nuts but mine had the shrink collars. You have to drill and split them, then put new ones on. I made a puller and it was still a job. Somebody on here posted a picture not long agw of how he did it in a press. I have extra seals because of a dealer mistake, you can have them it they're right. Let me know, email open

The inner seal should be a conventional single lip seal, not a felt seal. This seal is responsible for keeping oil out of the brakes.

The outer seal is also a single lip seal, and its job is to keep dirt out of the bearing assy, which is to be packed with grease. It should also be able to keep oil off the brakes if the inner seal fails. Stated another way, if you have oil on the brakes, they should both be replaced.

This looks to be a pretty easy repair. I assume the large nut on the axle holds it in the bearing. How do you set the preload when you go back together. I will pick up the I T manual and start on taking it apart. I hope the procedure will be covered there. Thanks again

The nut is torqued to spec. There is no preload on those bearings, instead a little bit of end play. Note that the two sides are adjusted for end play at the same time. If you read the book carefully, you'll figure it out.

Bern can you tell me the purpose of the nut and what it should be torqued to. I could turn this one by my hand.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
