My '~'73 1020 is getting ready to hit the road to the next owner, and about the only thing I can say is they are getting a MUCH better tractor than the one I have fixed up. One of the last things I had to do was rebuild the fuel pump. While installing the pump, apparently I rolled the leading seal between the pump and the drive gear shaft.
In the repair manual during reassembly, it shows Roosa-Master tool 13369 as a seal installer and a Roosa-Master 13371 (JD256) seal compressor (page 91-20-3). I would like to seek the advise of others to see of there's an alternative, effective method to compress the seals, of if perhaps someone on the forum had these tools I could beg/borrow/rent and return.
It also mentions using a product called lubriplate on the seals. A google search shows that to be a brand of lubricants not a specific product. Which product would you think is the most suitable, or is there another off the shelf product that would work?
