Finally decided to replace leaking right axle seal and brakes on my MF 50. Removed tire, drum, brake shoes, loosened the 16 nuts. See I have to disconnect the brake lever shaft yet, as its connected to the brake inner plate.

I assume axle will pull right out once the 16 nuts are removed. Do i need to be careful of anything?

I am hoping only to have to replace the inner seal, but will also have to grease the bearing. Am i right in assuming the outer seal is only for bearing grease?

Also looking for tips on re-assembling. Thanks

Left axle seal and brakes look fine.

Yes, Be careful when reassembly to not damage new seal. I have seen where axle was blocked and rolled on pipes both on and off and it worked well.
