Customer Question
Kubota 345DT Leak...

Kubota 345DT Leak at PTO shaft. It appears that to replace this seal one must remove the shaft and the seal/bearing housing in one piece. What must I do to extract the shaft ?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

L245DT 50722

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am making the repair I have removed the top cover of the differential and the gear drive for the front axle on the bottom of the differential . I have removed the four bolts that secure the shaft bearing and seal to the back of the differential case

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Equipment Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

In talking with the Kubota dealer this repair seems uncovered in their service manuals. An old timer recalls a problem with a loose gear once the shaft is removed. Right now the shaft won't move

# 15 is the shaft, with the rear cover loose, the shaft assembly should come out, I don't see any gear that would be disturbed.
