BGB Seal Dilemma


Recommended Posts


Went to repair the left leaking seal (As Seated On Tractor) on the 3416 H BGB. Pulled the old bad seal out and noticed that the new ones, part 2118117SM , were made different  as far as internal depth goes compared to the original. See picture.  The "New" one will not go in all the way in solid and level with the boss of the casting  as the original seal did. Now I looked very carefully to see if anything else was wrong after this problem came up and all looked good.  Frustrating when you are trying to make a tractor run and the new parts are different. If anyone has ideas that would be great.

Al the best

@HorvikWrap electrical tape around the retaining ring grooves and keyway to protect the seal lip from getting torn and lube the shaft and seal with oil prior to installation.
