Ford 5550 Needs Help

Tinker Bray We recently bought a well worn Ford Ind 5550 TLB (not sure what year). It works out well but there's a steady leak at the rear axle. Have a mechanic who's never worked on this particular model but is going to tear into it. We don't have manuals yet (have parts manual ordered) so we can't answer his question ... "Is it supposed to have dry brakes or wet brakes?" Would rather get him started at least rather than wait 2-3 weeks for the manual so any help with this question or general info on the 5550 would be greatly appreciated.
Shaun Wallace The brakes are wet. The boots are replaceable from outside. The NH p/n 86576339
