Help blew my transfer seal

Help blew my transfer seal heading up to do some wheeling at the Fall Heritage event in VT this week end. I was driving and started smelling a terrible smell . I pulled over and discovered that gear oil was dripping from the Ebrake drum

I need to replace the seal that goes behind the Ebrake drum.
i have the Ebrake drum off now and im not sure where the seal is. does the whole assembly have to come off?
I unbolted it and hit it with a rubber hammer but it didnt move . does something else need to be unbolted?

Any help would be appreciated. I have attached a picture to show you where i am in the disassembly.

Ron you are looking right at it in the pic. The black outer ring is the seal. Just pry it out and install a new one. Pre grease the new seal and carefully tap it back in. You will also need a new brake pad kit. JP

You should also look at the condition of the collar on the drive shaft. If its smooth with a slight ring mark it may be ok but if it has a deep groove into it, that might be causing some of your problems. If its not too bad you can sand it smooth. I pried mine out with a flathead screwdriver and a hammer than drifted in a new one with a piece of wood and that hammer.

Ron I doubt there is anything wrong with the bearing. I would replace the seal. torque the flange bolt to the right spec, and get back on the road. Also the drum shoes are like sponges. I doubt you will get them to work like new shoes. it is to bad they cost so much. JP

You can always get the shoes relined with new material for real cheap at some brake shop. I do it with the hand brake cause it is not realy a performance item. But I agree you do have to change it.

Hopefully the bearings are ok. but my speedo stopped working when I lost the fluid. does the speedo gear just slide out?
I will most likely get new shoes. there is a local guy that used to do my studebaker shoes for me. i hope he is still in business.

whats your email address and ill forward

Follow-up Post:

Got the seal in and no leaks. Transfer case sounds good and shifts good.

But
The speedo isnt working. Is that a gear inside the case i can slide out and replace ?
i took the speed sensor off and the collar around the femalel portion of the speed out put .

Does this just slide out or is there something Im missing?

is this where people change the gear to make the speed read correctly after going with the bigger tires?
thanks all for the help.

If the seal holds up and I can get my buddies truck running Ill be towing the D down to MAR for some off roading.

Ron jack a wheel up and get someone to spin it while you look at the gear to see if its turning. It could be somthing else at fault
