Both axles and the transmission cover are back on the H tonight.

It was not looking good earlier. The cover gasket shrunk, the brake seal was wrong and the axle seal was wrong. I put all the shafts back in and will put the correct seals in when I get them.

I tried welding a nut on the bolt that twisted off, but it just twisted off below the nut. I ended drilling it out and running a tap to clean it up.

My goal is to have it all buttoned up and full of lube before next weekend. The wrong seals did not help much.

I am going to paint the rims and center castings while the tires are off. The first coat is on both now. I will let the paint harden over the winter and change tires in the spring.

Good effort. Wrong parts are a show stopper. How did the brake band de-oiling go? Jim

Have not gotten to it yet, working on getting heavy parts on first.

David, just how bad a job is removing the top cover and the upper transmission shaft? My H is popping out of 5th gear and the top cover seeps some oil so it needs some attention. About every seal in the tractor has been replaced except for the axle seals, just dread getting at it.
Those brake bands do flame a bit while burning off the oil but it didn't seem to hurt them as they will both slide the wheels without much effort, but still don't grab. Joe

I did it a couple years ago to my H. It isn't too bad. It is a lot nicer than dealing with your problems!!! That would drive me crazy.
