I ordered a new crankshaft rear seal and a gasket set for the Hydra Power today, so while I am waiting, I decided to take the brakes apart and clean them up. The right side was nearly full of dirt and dust. When I took the bottom bolt out of the left cover, it started leaking, not a good sign!!The linings and actuator are soaked with oil. These aren't like the others I have done, I can't see the seal, it's behind the inside plate that the brakes run against. I tried to get something behind it to work it out, but I ran out of time and had to quit for today. Anyone ran into this and how do you get the plate out to replace the seal??? Hey, it's only money and you can't take it with you, right??

I got a better look at it this morning, there are 3 bolts inside the housing fastening the housing to the transmission case. Can I take them out to get the housing off without disturbing the pinion shaft?The parts book shows the seal on the back side of the housing.

How can there be this much oil inside the housing and the disc is stuck on the shaft? One of lifes great mysteries!!

Do as much cleaning as possible first. Using an air hose blow out accumulated dirt from behind housing. The pinion will be ok. Just don't disturb any shims you find. Remove the linkage. Take out the three bolts. Pull off the brake housing. The seal can then be changed. Clean up everything making sure the splines are clean. Any discs that are worn or oil soaked will need to be replaced. Reassemble and adjust. DONT over adjust. Pedal height of half to three quarter is high enough. Check the ball and ball socket are not over worn. They can be repaired by welding and grinding.

That looks different than mine, seal was right there, I didn't have to replace them. Did they use different housings? My brakes didn't work. Lined disks were OK, links and anchor bolts were corroded badly.

I would not pull the housings because then you're messing with shims and the oring. I would just pull the cup and seal. The cups are available.
