950 Front Axle

While refurbing my 950 front axle I thought to take off the hubs and replace the oil seals as they were looking a bit past it

I smelled a rat when the split pins that hold on the castleated nuts were 2" wood nails but pulling the hubs off someone had used the inner races as drifts to "press" the outer races into the castings - with a big hammer. I'm surprised they survived the installation process let alone the last 30 odd years since I bought it.

It is looking much better now
