  • Rear Axle: Flanged Axle shafts bearings and seals

    #1 - On a '66 sedan with a Dana 27 rear axle (I think the Model 44 is similar), the outer grease seal is unavailable through any of our Stude Parts vendors Part # 1562434. Does anyone know of an interchange for this seal?

    #2 - On the same vehicle, the cone and roller portion of the rear wheel (axle shaft) bearing is listed in the Chassis Body Parts Catalog as Part # 1562421 while Part # 530451 is listed for tapered axle shaft cars. However, the cup portion for both bearings is Part # 165167 (SKF BR14276). FLAPS only show this second cone and roller (#530451 - SKF 14132T) as being used in all 65/66 Studebakers. Are they truly interchangeable? Is there an interchange for the complete kit that a FLAPS might know about?

    #3 - I cannot find a Stude Parts Vendor that sells the shaft bearing retaining ring (clinch ring) - Part # 1562427 used to hold the bearing in place. I am thinking there must be an easy interchange with Ford or Chrysler or?

    Any and all help appreciated, thanks in advance.

      If Chris can help all is well. If you have further difficulties with Dana parts, go on-line and search for Dana/Spicers parts for the 27. I did that with the 44 in my Avanti's (74/83) and found the bearing/seal/ring kit for a 70 or so IH Scout II was a direct replacement.

      Several 4X4 sites have very good parts listings and Dana is a very popular supplier. There's little difference between the Stude Dana and the ones used in other applications.

        Another good source would be Phil Harris at Fairborn Studebaker. If he doesn't have it, I bet he knows what else swaps in. Good luck.
