Help!! I need a locking hub replacement part

Hi! Hopefully someone can help me here! I need to find a replacement part for my locking hub. I opened up my Dana 30 differential and a plastic seal it has inside was all broken. I need to replace it but haven't had any success on finding a spare. Have looked EVERYWHERE!! Morris 4x4, Quadratec etc... And I'm desperate, can someone help me?? It's this part.

Mine did the same so I ordered completely new hubs. I've never seen parts for them, but I wouldn't want more plastic anyway.

PM me your address and I'll send you my old ones that I replaced. Not 100% complete but sure what you're looking for is there. Just postage.

Look closely at the seal, if it has a number any good hydraulic or bearing shop should have them.
Might find it on line also.

Thanks for the answer!! What did you do then? I agree that it would be a lot better to not use plastic. Where did you buy your new hubs?

You're too kind, thank you! If you're not using them any more, what are you doing now? What was your solution for not using them. I live in Colombia, South America... it's a bit far away

Unfortunately it doesn't... but if there is an alternative to not using plastic seals I think it would be much better

No offense, but I think you're beating a dead horse here. I think fixing a set of 50 year old marginal hubs is a study in frustration at best. Unless you're looking to restore the rig there are a couple of better options.


Many upgrade to 6 bolt hubs. Most expensive scenario but a good decision for those looking to do heavy duty work with their rig.



Best case 5 bolt scenario is to upgrade to a set of Warn premium hubs. These are the most expensive, but are common, proven, and Warn provides many replacement parts.


Other option is to spring for a new set of cheaper hubs, such as Mile Marker or Rugged Ridge. If you're not doing a lot of heavy wheeling these may be a better option as their cost is half that of Warn.

vhosie - when I disassembled the hubs to replace the rotors I realized that the parts from the two sides were not identical. Probably due to a number of maintenance cycles and a variety of mechanics. So rather than deal with the unknown I just replaced them with Mileage Marker hubs. I didn't realize you were in South America, but still willing to ship. The package for both weighs about 3.2 Lbs (1.5 Kg?).
