    I'm using what I believe to be F1 spindles and f100 hubs and drums. The diameter of the seal surface is 1.75 inch. All I can find local is still listed as leather seals. Upon searching on here all the recommended seals are for 1.5 or 1.562 surfaces. Any ideas?

    Find a real auto parts or industrial supply and in their catalogs will be the specs you need. OD-ID-material

    BOBCRMAN; When on the site "applied.com", and inputting dimensions on the shaft size do you think I should plug in 1 5/8 inch for a actual size of 1 3/4 inch seal surface? Or do they make them smaller to seal the shaft size that is inputted?

    I think the diameter of the seal surface is smaller on 40 spindles. I could be wrong as this is my first time around at this. I used the www.applied.com site and have some on order. I'll post the result when they come in. Thanks

    As I recall the front wheel seal is the same 28-48 !!!
     
  8. If you have F-1 spindles (1-3/4" seal surface) and F-100 hubs, just get a stock F-1 or F-100 seal, they are the same part, Timken 5827. There is nothing wrong with using leather wheel seals either.

    RICH B; Isn't the reason for the grease cups was to catch and redirect the grease that would leak past them? Or are the new leather seals better then the old ones?
     
  10. I think modern wheel bearing grease is more heat resistant and stays "in" better. I still install the grease shields tho.
