Ohhh, gotcha, you were referring to smoothing the shaft itself for the seal. I think I misread it the first time.

Trust us, just get the Napa 11800, it'll work... There is also no need for a seal down by the disconnect now...

Just because I plan on doing this myself in a couple weeks, the plastic "slinger", is it really needed? Not sure if $8 shipping is worth it for a $2.99 part if it isn't needed. Could I just put a seal on the end of the tube and call it good?
just FYI the pictures on this thread are not working. I appreciate the time you took to put this thread together and I still found useful information from the written parts. It is too bad I can't see the pics it would make it even better. but again thanks for doing the work of writing up the conversion.
