    seals only go bad for a few reasons.
    1. A bad vent causing excess pressure.
    2. Worn shafts or bearings.
    3. Something entering and injuring the seal.

    Is it on a drive motor?

    I have not had a chance to tear into it yet. knowing absolutely nothing about skid steers, I have been a little anxious about tearing into it until I know a bit more. The shaft/hub that the wheel bolts to is wobbly and oil is leaking onto the inside of the tire. it is a belt drive setup so I don't know what that entails as far as drive motors are concerned.

    Don't be afraid. It's no different than a car or truck or tractor. It's only as afraid of you as you are it lol

    Time to buy a repair manual or at least find a parts catalog.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.
