1995 gator 4x2 transaxle input shaft seal

Hello to the forum! After reading the answers that helped me solve an engine issue, I decided to register. The new problem I found is a leaking transaxle input shaft seal. I have the repair manual, but it never mentioned this seal removal or replacement. I am hoping it can be removed without splitting the case, such as with a small slide hammer and screw grabbing it in holes drilled in the seal collar. Can it be this easy? If I have to split the case, can I separate the case with the input shaft side facing up, having all the guts n gears stay in the right passenger side of the case? Other thoughts? Thank you.

You have to remove the transmission and split the case. Then lift out the input shaft assembly along with the differential assembly at the same time. Replace the seal and reassemble. Not too hard, much easier to do with two people to handle everything without it falling apart.

Thank you Jeffh,
I thought that might be the procedure...splitting the case.
Perhaps I should change the axle shaft seals also since I have to get inside.
Would you have those part numbers? Thank you

I have a feeling you are doing too much work.
Granted i can take the gearbox and split it in a half day as ive done loads but i would never do so just for an input shaft.

All you need to have is a small pointy screwdriver and find a point of entry where you can hit it in with a hammer and try to pry it up.

If this does not work go a step up in screwdriver size and try to create a hole in the seal from where you can pry it out.

In the shop i tend to have a plethora of modified screwdrivers to make this easier but its a simple job.

When i put it in i always put a little dab of sealant on the outer edge as an extra precaution but thats personal and not needed per se

Interesting. Mine is a 2002. I am a service manager at a JD dealer. I tried to change the seal without removing the transmission but could not. I took it out and brought it to our shop where our Gator tech split the case and replaced the seal. So maybe it is different than a 1995 model? But the parts all appear to be the same. There was a shoulder or lip in the housing which the seal sat against. We drove the seal down against it with a socket from the inside.

These models are all in the same parts catalog, no serial number break for the seal or housing.

It looks like the seal on the newer TS version (2004 and after) of the 4X2 can be changed from the outside. The parts pic (different parts catalog) shows it externally while the older 4X2 shows it with the internal parts.
