    Stephen Allen's has the outer seals. Along with everything else.

    So all that said, inner seals are available from S.I. and others. Bearings are available from S.I. and if I have the numbers I am sure they can be found elsewhere as well. The key it seems are the "outer" seals. This is a factory flanged axle housing. Is there an outer seal available or not?

    If parts become a problem and it is a flanged Dana 44, look at Jeep or Off-road parts suppliers from around that year. On my 74 Avanti, I found the International Scout II Dana 44 axle bearing rebuild kit was a direct fit. One difference before my 74 was axle spline count. Make sure you know your spline count and axle diameter when you start looking.

    I see "National" still lists the seal on their web site so no need to panic tonight. I will go to the local parts store tomorrow.

    What about the CR13165 seal. They came out around mid 90's, fit my 44 axle, still available...

    Rich,

    I have had the rear wheels and drums off to inspect the brakes, it has flanged axles. So are seals "unobtainable"?

    The 'Special" Axle Seals are NLA, you will have to search "Other" vendors for those, if it is a Late enough '65 to have Flanged Axles.

    Look for a Axle end with a Nut or NOT, behind a Rear Wheel Cover.

    '65 Daytona Dayna Dana 44 Axle Bearing Replacement

    I bought a 65 Daytona Sport Coupe that was archived since '99. The previous owner actually left a list of things that needed tended to in the console. I got the car running easily and have driven it around town just to work out the bugs. I fixed everything that rattled and now that it is a bit quieter and there are a few miles on it one thing on the list is a concern, "check drivers side rear wheel bearing". It is starting to make noise. I want to replace both sides as long as I have it apart. What do I need to buy and from who? It seems S.I. has the parts but I want to make sure I order the correct parts.
