rear pinion seal
« on: March 25, 2010, 08:38:27 AM »
I am looking for a new rear pinion seal.  I tried then and now with no luck.  It seems that there is a early seal and late seal.  Does any have any leads on such?  Is there a difference?  I had groove worn in the pinion which I installed a ready sleve so I could reuse the orginial if needed.

Rusty,

I got mine from Then and Now - need to ask to speak directly with Tom Hannaford.  The seal parts mauals show two sizes for the pinion shaft that the seal rides on.  However, mine was different from either of them.  Best to measure to be sure.  If Tom no longer carries them, then call Larry Chegwidden (after 8 PM Pacific time) at (503) 253-8941.  He makes the axel seals and may also carry the pinion seal, but I am not sure.
