Re: 40c oil seal

Thank you, Lavoy, both of the old oil seals were in backwards.

Re: 40c oil seal

Placing the oil seal into the final drive from the back of the final drive, which way should the oil seal face? With the metal frame to the inside or outside? Also, using just one oil seal should it go all of the way in against the race, or flush with the outside of the final drive? When I removed t...

Re: 40c oil seal

Finally got around to knocking out the race (cup), and the oil seals (there were 2 used). Is this correct, as far as using 2 oil seals?

Re: 40c oil seal

Lavoy, tell me how to pay, and I'll send the money right away. Also, this looks tricky to remove that race. The oil seal might be a lot easier. Any helpful hints.

Re: 40c oil seal

If you look at a 40c final drive, it is in the back of the final drive housing on the top where the final drive shaft goes through it. Also there is a cup (race) part # JD 8220 T that is in front of the oil seal. I have the cup, but without a new oil seal I'm afraid of ruining the old oil seal tryin...

Re: 40c steering problem

Before I go any farther, let me say this: on my 40c, the left final drive is off of a 420, and the right final drive is a 40c, however, the right final drive had broken some time before I bought it and was welded up. If that matters. Now, I just provided more slack by loosening the brake adjusting s...

Re: 40c steering problem

Are you talking about the brake adjusting set screw? I thought about that, and will loosen it up today, if I can get out there before the rain starts. Thank you for your response, gregjo.

40c steering problem

I adjusted my right side steering/breaking. Backing out of the shop everything worked like it was new, however, going forward and pulling back on the right lever, I hear a groan in front of the transmission and the crawler wants to stop. Any ideas what is wrong?

40c mystery thing

There is some kind of electrical device on my 40c. It is on the right side of the motor toward the front and mounted below the generator. There are two wires on it and one goes to the coil. What is the name of this thing and what does it do?

Re: 40C right final drive

Yes, I'm sure it's mechanical. Winter is coming soon, so I'll put it in the shop, and tear it down. I had to work on the right final drive axle and put in a new bearing some years ago, so that's not a problem. I have a wood stove and plenty of wood. Any early suggestions about what I should look for...
