Due to some changes, I am sticking with the OEM hubs for now, $$$ is preventing the change to 6 bolt hubs for a while. SO with that in mind......
Ok, got things ready to go..... Question about wheel seals. SO when I pulled the hubs these are the seals I pulled from the hubs:
Clearly there is a flat lip on the top edge of the seal and the rubber gasket is attached to the inner portion of that lip.
So, I went to the parts store and asked for replacement seals based on everything I read here, it was a Timken 4131 which looks like:
This is quite different than what was on there so I can only assume the PO used the wrong seal. Now the parts clerk did give me an option of the National Oil Seals #3945 which looks like:
This appears to be a more accurate replacement for the one I took off, but looking at ALL of the parts info I can find including the Jeep Parts Manual Crown Vintage Jeep Vehicles parts manual I get part number 5356675 which appears to look like the seal I removed (first photo). Just to double check I went to the Timken site and plugged in the info for my Jeep and again came up with the 4131 seal.
For those that have done it, which it the correct one? I am working on it today and want to get them done so I appreciate any replies on a lazy Sunday morning!
