    1937 un styled AR axle seals

    Hi
    New to the forum, I'm working on the first tractor that my Grandpa bought new back in 1937 it is a un-styled AR and showed up on the farm two months before my Dad was born. It has stayed in the family all these years but hasn't been running in many. my brothers and son and I have been going through it and we are getting it close but there are a couple of oil leaks in the rear end so we took the rear end housing off. Has anyone changed axle seals on one of these before? It looks pretty straight forward, although I'm not even sure they are leaking and don't know if I should get into them other than I'm into it this far and it just seems like the right thing to do.

    Thanks

    Scott

    I understand your attachment to your grandfathers tractor. My grandmother gave me my grandfathers 1967 1020 in 91 when I moved onto a acreage. He bought it in 69 used but he kept it in his farm yard mostly for cleaning out stalls. I have used it to pull an 72" finish mower since. Just retiring it since I bought a 2038R and it is fast becoming a bone of contension between me and wife. She wants it sold and of course I want to keep it. I will probably sell it because no sense letting it set, its not really a antique but ... who Knows. she points out "The gathering of the Green" is in town this week but they just push tractors up to 1960. The reason I replaced it at my age it was to hard to climb on it. I was using a 5 gallon bucket but last year I had to get a short step Ladder. Good luck with your project look forward to pictures.

    I put new seals in our 1946 Unstyled AO 18 years ago. Been so long ago I don't remember to much, but I think they are just felt seals. Just have to pull the axle and install the felt in the tin ring.

    Thanks for the page out of the parts manual Cjet I dont have much for manuals and everything helps. your picture looks very familiar I should have been snapping more as we went along but we have been to and from the project for over a year now as time alows I have a lot of other green equipment that I rely on to make a living that demands attention ahead of the AR but this project is getting priority because it is becoming a race to get it finished while my Dad still remembers it I think I will pull those axels and change the seals if i can find replacements

    You can download a PDF parts catalog from the JDParts website. It takes a while to download so be patient. I believe you want catalog 674.

    we use the JD parts website for all our other equipment i will try it for the old AR probably cant find many good part numbers any more but the parts blow ups are useful

    I did take the rear axles apart It took all of about 30 minutes. the outer seals are felt and just hold grease and look good I think I will keep these intact but the inner ones hold oil and one was toast and had leaked oil into the inner portion of the axle the other side was not far behind I was able to match up some modern seals at the napa store so i should be able to get the project going again next week when they come in.

    Thanks again
