Re: replacing rear main oil seal universal 5424
Just saw your post. Finally got my seal out YESTERDAY. Nothing to it. All I needed were some simple instructions which are not to be found in the Universal Diesel Model 15 Service Manual.
Got directions from: Small diesel engine; Small diesel engine serv. man
Publisher: Overland Park, KS - Technical Publications Division, Intertec Pub Corp., which I found at my local library.
Used the Z500 Kubota directions to remove the bearing case cover. The seal comes out with the cover. Very simple: Cover has 2 jackscrew holes, turn 2 screws and voila!, cover and seal come right out.
If you still haven't gotten to it, you'll need to remove the bell housing along with the tranny (the tranny is bolted to the bell housing from the inside- everything comes off as one piece), then the pressure plate and flywheel. I used a come-along and lots of blocks to hold up the engine. All bolts came out easily with Corrosion-X and an electric impact wrench.
Everything on the 5411 looks completely different from Mainsail's 5425.
Hope this helps.
