"Permanent" Replacement Seals For Deere 30, 40 Series TractorsA Missouri machine shop that got tired of replacing leaky load control shaft seals on Deere 30 and 40 series tractors came up with heavy-duty “PERMANENT” replacement seals.
Boling Machine Shop, Lenter, Mo., says Deere’s seals often start leaking after six months or less. Boling has been making heavy-duty replacements for 20 years. The replacements are machined out of steel with Teflon liners, O-rings, or neoprene washers, depending on model. The O-rings, liners and washers can be replaced without replacing the seals. The 4020 seals also fit 4010, 5010, 5020 and some applications of 4000 models.
The 3020 seal also fits 2510, 2520, 3010 and 4030 tractors. A 4520 seal also fits 4620, 7020, and 7520 tractors. This series sells for $55 a set.
The company also has seals and bushings for newer tractors which include 4440, 4230, 4240, 4320, 4430, 4440 and 6030. Each set contains two hardened steel bushings which have a wider surface to reduce shaft wear and two seals with replaceable inserts. They sell for $85 per set.
We also sell load control shafts for most models. New seals this year are, 2950, 2940, 2840, 2850, 2855, 2550 and many others. All seals are fully guaranteed.
