I'm sorry let me rephase the question;

the seal that is leaking is the one around the front drive shaft on my 5410 4WD

John deere. it is leaking around the front drive shaft that comes out of the front pumkin.

Can you provide me with a diagram of the front drive shaft with seals and bearings?

Remove your drive shaft and use puller to remove #8 cover then remove seal #7, job is not very easy, Manual doesn't list tools needed to replace seal, may need to make piece of pipe to fit over drive shaft to reinstall seal and cover. graphic
