Thomas forgot to mention you will need a dummy lay shaft to be able to drop
the lay gear  and replace it, without dismantling the whole gearbox, A
difficult job if you do attempt dropping the gear as you need a dummy shaft
exactly the right length for it to pick up the thrust washers each end of
the lay  gear so they go down with the gear.  Mal Clark

Replacing the front seal in the gear box of my ST 11A, reading the workshop
manual indicates the lay shaft has to be dropped and then the shaft and the
bearing and seal housing are removed, press the bearing out and change the

Am I reading the manual correctly or can you extract the bearing and seal
housing without having to drop the lay shaft and remove as a unit, I only
want to change the seal as I have the gearbox on the floor and as a
precautionary measure.

Your valid response would be appreciated.
