Re: I GOT THE AXLE OUT! new?
Okay, if you're not pist now, you will be. You need to buy a new seal. Best bet is the dealer on this.
Also, check the bearing you bought. Did it come with a bearing retainer (collar)? If not, order that too. You'll need a press to do this by the book, otherwise, you need to CAREFULLY cut the collar almost all the way thru with a cut off tool. The pull the bearing off. Clean it up and install the new bearing. Heat the collar up by putting on top of a 100W lite bulb for 15-20 mins, drop onto the shaft and make sure it is fully installed.
