Okay, I'm back. I called around on the oil seals and found that Motion Industries had them in stock but not the ones I posted, those are NLA but they had another brand so I ordered them. I purchased 6 seals for a total of $48 shipped to my door. I pulled all the old seals and cleaned everything up.
The roller bearings looked okay for not having any grease in them. What was in there was all dried up and nasty so I cleaned them with degreaser and brake cleaner then repacked them with wheel bearing grease after the seals were installed.
The roller bearings are HK 3020 if you ever need to replace them. I pressed one of them out just to see how hard it was and they come out pretty easy.

Here is a shot of the new seals installed with the roller bearing block nearest.

Time to button it up. The only place I used Permatex was at the top and bottom of the inner bearing block. I used Ultra Black.

Time to start stacking parts. There are two gaskets, a rear axle cover plate and the differential cover. I used two 1/4-20 bolts and cut the heads off to make reassembly easier.

Cub Cadet wants $25 for each gasket. I was careful when I removed them and I reused the old ones after I cleaned them up. They can be reused, I have no leaks. They have some type of metal in them so they are pretty tough.

Here is the inside of the rear axle cover plate. The unpainted pieces are some type of spacer plate they use to compensate for the gasket that goes between it and the aluminum rear housing.

That's all the pictures I have. All in all, it wasn't a hard job and so far everything works great.

Outstanding write up on the repair. First time I've seen one of these apart. I'll stick to the older stuff thank you. Can't believe that they didn't design it so that the outer bearings could be greased. This thread will be going in the tech section.

"I don't have a socket big enough but I will next time."

I'm glad I'm not the only one using old pipe and 1/2 " socket wrench to make a breaker bar the few times I need it.

Nice work!

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
