Replacing REAR HUB SEALS - RA-101-03

Here the rear wheel is reversed with the brake drum temporarily pinned inside. Notice the accumulation of dirty gear lube inside of the wheel, as well as the radial spattering of oil on the tire sidewall and the puddle on the floor where the tire was parked. This hub has been leaking a lot. Now remove that third flat head screw and pull out the half shaft.
