    Front spindle seals on 1025R leaking. Vent needed?

    This is my first post to this forum so I apologize if thinks are no correct. Has anyone had any issues with the 1025R front spindle seals leaking. I have 70 HRs on mine and the left side started leaking from what I think is from lack of a vent on the front housing, just curious if anyone has experience this. The dealer repaired the problem without issue and said that a vent is not needed but a tend to disagree with them.

    I've not read of spindle seals being an issue at all with these models. The venting issue has been hotly debated here and on other tractor forums, never any conclusions but in know that no JD sub-compact or compact has them.

    Those seals are easy to F up when installing. If the tractor is under warranty, I would call the dealer

    Welcome from Preston County, West Virginia



    As KennyD posted since dealer replaced it , you should be fine.

    I've owned a 1026 and now 1025 total hours over 600 hrs no problem.

    Enjoy your tractor it was just one of those items that failed , either bad part or human error when it was built.

    Welcome.

    Seal leaks on these axles are few and far between. Been designed like this for a few decades so I would say it's a proven design IMO.

    Since the dealer fixed you up, you should be trouble free.

    My 2038R has a front axle vent. I only know because after running it up the road I had a drip under the pumpkin. There was an update apparently because the dealer sent someone out and they replaced the vent. The new vent is more of a check valve, air cannot come out but can breathe in. I am glad to hear the others didn’t have them because I was not sure I was a fan of it becoming “pressurized” so to speak.

    Are you sure it isn't the opposite? Breathing in would allow water to enter the axle housing. Normally the axle will build up pressure when the oil gets hot with use. A vent would typically let the pressure equalize thus preventing oil leaks but it needs to be located such that water cannot get sucked in.
