Hi All,
Picking up a 45 2N......Gotta question about rear axel seals.
Seeing some seepage on the port drum/axel area....I questioned a
local NH dealer regarding seal availability......he told me to just
count on replacing the axels as well......he was adamant!...."You
replace just the seals on a 70 year old axel....It will be running out
the first time you mow your side hill"....further claimed.....both the
seals and the axels wear and believe me...you will be doing it
twice....since this will be my first go at 2n axel seals.....thoughts on
that one???......I have never heard that one before!!

And where are you suppose to get these new axles from? I didn't think anyone was still making them for a 2N. I know you can still get them for an 8N. But a 2N?

Ed, Not an expert, but I have six 9/2 Ns at last count. I have put Sure Seals in them and have no leakage problems.

Ed - I am 99% sure you can not get a new axle for a 9N/2N tractor... That being said, replace the outer seal is a chore as you have to pull the outer axle bearing and retainer to change that seal. I did it to my 2N and greased the bearings and install sure seals instead of letting the oil lube the bearing and count 100% on the outer seal. If you need more info when you get there, post and you'll get teh help you need. Keith

and if you decide to change the outer seal also you are going to need something like this and a large press to get the hub and bearing off, and some heat to get a new locking collar on.

Sorry Guys.....it is confirmed....no aftermarket 9/2n axels......either he mis-heard me.....or I mis-spoke!!!!

Be that as it may......he said if I bring hime the axels.....he would install inner and outer seals for about 125.00.....What think ye....as I don't have a press big enough for that job!!!!

I'll stop just shy of saying the dealer is 100% FOS...

IF the axle seal surface is trashed.. you would have to repalce it. or find a way to fix the seal surface..

manu just use sure seals and go with it and have no issues.

We have a machinist here that turns the axles down slightly and makes and installs a sleeve for them. It gives the seal a new sealing surface (obviously). A cousin just had two done. I cannot remember exactly much, but it was very reasonable, as I remember. Will check. This was on an 8N. Is 9N/2N the same?

9n/2n and 8n axles are quite different.. not saying you cannot build up and remachine a surface if you wanted to.
