sleeve vs pully

Postby HBSS » Mon Jan 28, 2019 10:58 am

I just removed my crank pully to replace the front seal on my cub. I noticed a very slight wear ring on the pully where the seal goes. Seeing as I don't want to do this again, I am leaning towards a new pully instead of putting a sleeve on the old one. My thinking is it will be easier and last longer. I would appreciate any comments on anyone's experience with this.

The sleeves are designed for industrial use too, so I doubt that you'd ever need to redo it. Placing the sleeve is simple if it comes with the tool or you make one.

Speedy Sleeves are a good fix and probably much more cost effective. Any used pulley will have suffered the same fate. Maybe someone is making new ones, I haven't checked, but hard to believe it wouldn't cost much more than a Speedy Sleeve. If you would find a new pulley, make sure to remove any paint from the seal mating surface.

Go with the sleeve, and never look back! I have them on most of my engines and they seal better than a new pulley would. Thanks; sonny

My front seal was replaced June 2006 and we used the TM Seal & Speedy Sleeve kit. Still no leaks.

Hi,
Below is a listing at TM Tractor for the front seal with the sleeve, it says they are Case IH parts, you can look at the pics. :)

I have been using a National sleeve and seal that came from local auto parts store in one of mine for about 15 years now and no leaks yet.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
