  • T-Cab rear axle seals

    In putting the rear end of my Champ back together I'd like to replace the axle seals, especially the outer one. The inner one, 1685410, is available from SI, but they don't list the outer one, 191023, and neither does the Timken Seal Interchange Guide.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Not a problem Jeff just take the old seal down to your local bearing place and they can measure it and match up a seal that is still in production. I had to do the same with my T cab.

      Thanks Randall, I'll give that a try.

      I expect they won't be able to help though, I took another look at that outer seal and the housing has a National part number stamped into it, and that's a pretty big chunk of stamped steel. I couldn't find any cross references to that number either.

        Jeff,

        You can "dig" out the old felt seal and some of our vendors sell the replacement felts. They're easy to replace, I'm sorry I don't know the vendors that carry them, but they're not expensive. Hope this helps.

          Hi Jeff, I think this may be the place I ordered these seals from 18 years ago. I think they were in Michigan at that time but they show a North Carolina address now. I couldnt find a website for them but they advertise in Hemmings as having parts for all makes. This is their ad copied from the Hemmings website: BEARINGS, seals for: axles, clutch, differential, pinion, transmission, wheels, all years. Olcar Bearing Co, 135 James Creek, Southern Pines, NC 28387, 910-693-3324 or brgdr@earthlink.net.

          Or maybe it was this company, Northwestern Auto Supply of Grand Rapids, MI. Yeah, I think thats it.

            When I had my T cab, I dug out the old felt seals and replaced them with Stude V8 front crankshaft seals as I had a few on the shelf. They were still on the truck when I sold it in 2005. Bud

              Jeff - My 63 T-Cab's Dana 44 took SKF-19887 outer seals. I replaced the inner seals with a pair of SKF-13862.
