Never been there done that, just basing my theory on what I see in the parts drawings. No warranty on my end. :mrgreen:

There is going to be dowel pins in the big cover so work careful to come off square.

I have a puller but it is not big enough I guess a Harbor Freight trip should happen.

Any chance of getting pictures? I think your experience might help others.

Ok I got everything back together on the housing what is the key to getting the housing back onto the tractor? I have tried to gently tap it on and it will only go so far I tried tapping on the end of the axle and it pushes the axle in too far. I also tried treading the bolts on and tightening them down little by little and that would not pull it back together. Let me know what the key is to getting it back together easy. Thanks

Wish I had an answer for you. Dowel pins lined up? Gears turned to mesh with others? Bearing lined up good with transmission housing? How far off is it?

it will go about 1/2 inch before it gets stuck. Where should I tap with a hammer?

Wish I had a good answer for you. You might consider removing the hydraulic housing up top. This might give a view of what is not lining up. Just something to ponder. I know from experience a bigger hammer is often the wrong choice. Where are you located?

Ok so I got it back together and the axle seal is still leaking and its brand new from Hoye. Maybe the axle is worm down?? What is the exact size of the axle where it rides in the seal so I can measure it to make sure that is not the problem. Thanks

Don't know the exact axle diameter but the seal is to be 45x70x12mm, the 45 indicates shaft size. If your axle is worn it would likely have a groove cut in it where the seal lip runs.

I suspicion you may have got a 48-70-12 seal which fits the 1300. All I know for certain is that the 1401 parts manual calls for a 45-70-12 seal. 3mm difference is .118". Might surely make a difference.
