I recently had a problem where the rear seals leaked and coated the brake shoes with oil and had no brakes. I replaced the seals and brake shoes and had good braking when completed. I left the tractor set for a couple of months and when I went to use it, I had no brakes. The brake lining was soaked with oil again. I checked the rear axel oil level and it was over filled. My question is; if the oil level was too high, could that cause the seals to leak and soak the brakes?

Bill..... ..yes, too much hydro/tranny/diffy oil will flow out the axle trumpets and past your oil seals and soak your brake shoes. Find out why your fluid what overfilled. Did you get any water in it from a bad tranny shifter rubber boot?

In addition to cleaning your brake shoes, I'd strongly suggest you drain all your tranny/hydro fluid and start over. Tranny fluid is NOT THAT expensive. My 1970's tractor mentor neighbor insisted NEVER fill hydro full, always a qt low so it wouldn't splash out the axles trumpet ends and muckup the brakes.

Ford/New Holland now recommends 5 gals of M2C-134D hydro/tranny fluid. 1 filler up by tranny shifter, 3 drains. Drain the sq diffy plug first, then the big 2" hydro plug, then the big 2" tranny plug.

Of course you can use the original 60 yrold 90wt mineral gear oil, if you can find it. It is NOT the same as common 80-90wt which has additives that are not kind to your hydraulic pump..... ....Dell
