Just replaced front axle seals on my MF 1428V. Or at least I attempted to...went smoothly following the instructions in this post. However I cant get the axle hub to fully seat at the top gasket seal where it sits inside the axle. See pics attached. I ordered correct parts from the dealer. It seemed like a very tight fit before mounting. I inserted this gasket into the hub assembly first..and I have the beveled edge of the gasket up like it should be. Is there a trick to getting this inserted?...tried all the tricks, well lubed...bearings arent getting hung up...I even put the tire back on in hopes that the weight of the tractor would help push it in and seat it all the way. I did notice the new gasket looks different than the leaky one I removed, were they remanfactured recently?
Anybody else have this issue with similar tractor?

Hi, I hope you guys are still looking at this post. I need to change both sides on my 2003 1428V Hydrostatic, I am hoping you can help me with a part number for the seal. I bought the tractor this year from a dealer in Ontario and his mechanic sent me a page with the part number highlighted ( 3709149M91 and the top of the page says Chassis- Final Gear Case System (F type) ) but when I look on the Agro parts book site under the hydro I get (4266334M91) Do you know if the F type is for the non Hydro model, it looks like this is the case. Any help you can provide would be very appreciated. Thank you
