    I have a 300 gallon tank with an agitation system running through the middle of it with paddles. I have not used the tank for sealcoating yet but when I put water in it it will just drip out of where the bearing is on the one end, the other end is fine but the one end will just drip will the sealcoat leak out of it to or will the sealer be to thick to leak out? I replaced the seal in it and it still leaks with water in it. I want to go get sealer in it but I dont want it to get everywhere if it is gonna drip out. Any suggestions?

    if its a drip , no big deal the sealer will fill it its thick , , if its pouring out , no , but sounds like you will be fine

    I have the same issue of needing to change the bearings on one side of my sealcoating tank. How did you get the bearing off the shaft. I was working on it for over an hour and cannot get it off.

    Thanks for any help.

    What I did was take a hammer to the one end of the shaft that you dont want to come off and then take a pulley puller that should get it off.

    Heat it with the cutting torch and she will slide right off
