Toro 1028 Auger gearbox is leaking ( help please)

Hey everyone, I have Toro 1028 which is leaking from the Auger gearbox ( pictures below) . there's no grease when I checked the grease level .
I was wondering if it's easy to do it myself.
And do I need to replace the gasket or only the seal ?
Any video or pictures help with doing the job will be greatly appreciated.

pull it apart and throw some black rtv in between the case halfs. let it cure until its plyable until but not wet then refill with 80w90 synthetic. if you have it apart you might as well do shaft seals while your in there

Try using 00 Grease. It's Thicker than Oil, and might be an easy Fix. Available at TSC.

I will try 00 grease before trying to take it apart.
Btw, do I need any special tools to full the gearbox with 00 grease?
Thanks

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I SAID THIS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!! the seals on all TOROS will not hold the synthetic stuff. if it is a POWERSHIFT use holomar gasket dressing inbetween the halves.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

You are going to have to break the machine apart. undo all the side panels. take the pulley off on the back. and slide the whole deal straight on oot of there.

ps 93 is right on the oil, how many times most it stated these toro seals dislike synteh and leak with it, i found that out 20 years ago myself,

OP use the stickie link or go into the toro web site and download the repair manual for your machine before you start doing anything. it's not as easy as it looks close to 3/4's of the machine will be apart

mechanics viewpoint, i see the left auger shaft seal leaking dripping 90w down to look as if the housing is leaking. rusted shafts mean careful cleaning/polishing fully before replacing the seal or seals, you're looking at sliding a seal along 12 inches of shaft before sending it home.


as to the sealer rtv won't hold up. use the stuff called ultraseal https://www.permatex.com/products/ga...lant-dressing/ this sealer hardens more then normal rtv ,it's used in place of gaskets on machined surfaces like engine and transmssion oil pans, rtv has many good points yet has spots were it is no longer advisabale and ultra seal used in place of.

example would be for those who know,motors. take a chevy v8, the ends of the intake used to use a rubber seal,no longer a sealer is used, put a rtv there they leak rivers, use ultra let it set up a hour or more till tackie, no leaks

PS
another good sealer is prematex right stuff
https://www.permatex.com/product-cat...gasket-makers/

sealers have gotten so much better over the last few years, i have repaired motors that had long leaked from warped parts that no longer leak thanks to the newer sealers, yes it did teach this old dog some new tricks.
