9N Brakes Question Again!

I asked about a month ago how to get to the brakes on the 9N. I got some really great advice. Thank you. However, at this point I am trying to figure out what to do next. I pulled the drums, backing plates, and axles as one unit. I then removed the backing plates. The entire inside was a mess with oil and brake dust forming a nasty paste!!! I knew I was leaking some rear end fluid, but I thought it was coming from the gaskets at the trumpet. I am wondering if I am getting any leakage out of the end of the axle by the tapered roller bearing? Is there a seal there? I would think so, but the drum is riveted to the axle, so how would I get inside? Do I need to get in there? What is the deal with Sure Seals that I have read about? I was also told about a Ford repair manual for this tractor, but I misplaced the number of it, any help with that? Thanks again!

I think you have a handle on the problem. There are three cures that I am aware of: 1) original seals (which require splitting the bearing and don't work anyway) 2. Sure Seals and 3. "Zane" Seals.

I put in sure seals about five years ago and they are still holding. They are basically a cup that goes into the hub and a neoprene seal that runs on the axle to keep the oil our of the bearing. The corollary to this is that you have to pack the wheel bearing with a good grease. They are inexpensive being less than $12 a pair and not hard to put on. Search the archives for some additional info--axle must be smooooo ooth where the seal rides.

The "Zane" Seal is Mr. Zane's method of using teflon tape and silicone. The archives will turn this up if Mr. Sherman doesn't on this post. Never tried it so can't comment.

Finally, if'n you own a 9N you owe it to yourself to buy a "Zane Thang"--a bolt on device that gives the 9N hydraulics position control like the 8N.

Good luck and don't be afraid to ask lots of questions.

Thanks JerryU, but who sells the "Zane Thang"?
