rear axle housing oil

Postby jdeere86 » Tue Dec 29, 2015 10:46 am

hey all - sorry for bombarding this forum with questions , promise some day once I get knowledge that I will return the favor ,,,

anyhow I took both rear axle oil pans off the 140 - oil was black.....didn't realize there was a gasket there....have not seen them for sale on the parts sites I check out ...think i'd get by re using them with or without some sealant? they are somewhat flattened out looking

I'd recommend a gasket over a sealer because the only way to drain them is to removed the pans and a sealer can make that job next time around a mess. If they aren't cracked or broken Id say just clean the surfaces of the pan and final and reuse them. Fill with the same oil you put in the transmission.

Bob this is a 140, not a Cub.

Bob, those are for the Cub and Cub-like machines.

This is a 140.

That said you can cut your own gaskets out of cork or order new ones from a CaseIH dealer if the old gaskets are beyond hope.

If the gaskets came off cleanly, are not damaged, and were not leaking before, it's okay to reuse them. Odds are they are oily enough that sealant won't stick to them.

If you have a local dealer they should be able to get it if they don't have it in stock. According to the IH website the gasket is approx. $10.00.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I have used RTV designed for gear lub for years.

One or two tubes will cost less than one gasket.

It's easy to use. If you have to remove the part, removing the old RTV is easy, most just pull off. Remainder can be scraped off.
I have an excuse. CRS.
