Plow Gear Box Seals on model L(old style)

Procedure for doing this? As simple as pulling seals without dismantling gear box?
Also, the hexagonal tube the plow slides into. Should there be any side to side movement if I try to move it by hand? I have about 1/16" movement total. Thanks

I figured the seal replacement out. But mine had two seals on top and bottom. Manual I looked at showed one on each?

Due to the unavailablity of the original wide seals, Gravely used 2 narrow ones.

There should be no movement side to side. Either the bearings are bad or someone added shims that should not be there. If the seal plates are not tight, then that could cause excess slop in the bearings.

Code:
                              Current Inventory
   24G (Onan 24hp)    24GLX - was 16G  (Onan 24hp)   8249 - was 8129 (Onan 24hp)
        818T (Onan 18hp B48)       8163T - was 8123 (Onan CCKA) 
                              8183T (Onan B48)
   5665 w/brakes        5665        5660        Pro-8         Pro-16 w/brakes
