  • rear axle oil leak on 1948 8 N
  • I took off the rear wheel to paint it and there was oil on the bottom of the brake drum. The pads are fairly new. My father who gave me Grandpas tractor is no longer alive to ask. The center seals show no wetness on the outside. Which seal could be leaking or could the nuts on the big part of the bell (axle housing ) need torqued down ?

  • "Which seal....."

    Your 48 only has one seal and it's leaking.

    Time to replace them on both wheels.

    John Smith will tell you how to do it: http://www.oldfordtractors.com/rep.htm#q15
