Serf seals

Recommended Posts

sierradriver
I have a serf 525 and need axle shaft and shifter seals. My question is does anybody know numbers or where I should try to find them on the site. And how big of a project to change them. Can I do it without dis-assembly? Thanks for any help.

You can dowload the parts manual at the link below if you have the Mfg. number. The other link will give you an idea of cost. http://www.simplicitymfg.com/manuals/ http://www.jackssmallengines.com/ The link below wil give you the Mfg. numbers. http://www.simpletractors.com/what_fits/atch_(pg37).htm

Myself, Todd, and Ray are the Serf experts!! The right side axle seal can be removed my removing the tire, the three bolts that hold the bearing housing, and pulling the housing off the axle. That one is the easy one. There are like six seals to change. My book doesn't show a shifter seal, just a pair of half bushings in there. Most important is to make sure the shafts are clean of any burrs and smooth. Lube the seals with gear oil when you reassemble also.

Thanks guys for the help is there a better way to fix the shifter leaking oil cause if it leaks oil when it is out i would think it might let water in if for some reason it gets parked outside?

Park it under a tarp? Is the oil level too high? Mine seeps at best. I park it inside. I picked up a parts tractor (637) a few years ago that sat outside unused and uncovered for like nine years. I split the case open and there was no water in it. The shifter was stuck, but not rusted.
