I was wondering how hard is it to take the front crank pulley off and replace that seal. Also where can I get that seal at. Thanks

If you will search the archives you will find some very good threads on removing the crankshaft pulley (most difficult part of the job). I believe that if you go to Rudi's website and look under tips and tricks you may also find a procedure. The seal can be bought at most auto parts stores, but I would reccomend getting one from your local dealer, or on line from The IH one will come with a wear sleeve to put on the pulley in case it has wear grooves on it.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Front Crank Seal

I did this job on my '48 Cub a couple of months ago. Like John said, the hardest part is removing the pulley. If you still need some help, send me your email address and I will forward a written procedure with photos.

Pulled mine this morning in the field to replace front cover broken last week. This was the 2nd time I took it off and when I put it on last time I coated the crank with greese. It was still on there tight but it came off much easier this time.

I used a commercial bearing puller which makes the job really easy. Find a friend and borrow one or get a kit from northern tool. The whole kit is about 70 but I bet you could rent one locally for cheap.
