1975 450c steering brake lever oil seal

Post by stewartsdozer » Sun Aug 04, 2019 6:22 pm

Hello, thank you for accepting me. I have a 1975 450c bulldozer that I use on weekends doing dozer work. Just saying this dozer is not retired. It still works hard.

The seals around the brake lever shaft is leaking. I just can't take the dozer apart right now to change inside seals. Dozer is well maintained and fluids are checked regularly.

Is there some magic spell or sealer you would suggest to slow or stop leak? I need to keep moving right now.

Thank you.

Welcome to the forum.

Someone may have a product they have used with success. Remember anything you dump in to try to stop that leak will be circulating around the steering clutches, brakes, and transmission clutches. Good magic spells are very rare.

Future posts about your 450C should be on the Late Models Board which covers models starting with the 350 series. This post will likely get moved to that board.

Hope someone has a cure to fit your request.
