SECTION 00 -- GENERAL -- CHAPTER 1
All maintenance and repair work described in this manual must be performed exclusively by NEW HOLLAND
service technicians, in strict accordance with the instructions given and using any specific tools necessary.
Anyone performing the operations described herein without strictly following the instructions is personally re-

value indicated for each on shim.
ROTATING SHAFT SEALS
For correct rotating shaft seal installation, proceed as follows:
before assembly, allow the seal to soak in the oil it will be sealing for at least thirty minutes;
thoroughly clean the shaft and check that the working surface on the shaft is not damaged;
position the sealing lip facing the fluid; with hydrodynamic lips, take into consideration the shaft rotation direc-
tion and position the grooves so that they will deviate the fluid towards the inner side of the seal;
coat the sealing lipwith a thin layer of lubricant (use oil rather than grease) and fill the gap between the sealing
lip and the dust lip on double lip seals with grease;
insert the seal in its seat and press down using a flat punch, do not tap the seal with a hammer or mallet;
-- whilst inserting the seal, check that the it is perpendicular to the seat; once settled, make sure that it makes
contact with the thrust element, if required;
to prevent damaging the seal lip on the shaft, positio
