    I have been running that same set up with out the cups for the last 30 years(on a number of cars). The cups were there for the old rawhide seals . Once they started to leak(and the did), the cups kept the grease off the brake shoes. With the new seals you'll be good to go for 100K miles. :)

    Here are some National Seal numbers that will also work.
    473440, 450461 or 450273.

    You don't use a pound in seal "instead," it is used these days whether or not you use the cup.

    i did not know that as long as i dont have to use the cup im golden and baron im assuming these will work on the 42 to 48 spindles
     
  10. the Napa seal #15214 is for a shaft that is 1.500" in diameter , the part where the seal rides on an old ford spindle is 1.562"......but i'm sure it will work fine

    national 473440 is also for a 1.500" shaft , so is 450461

    i use national # 473441 which is for a 1.562 shaft
