Re: Question about axle seal surface problem

Thanks, I'll check it out if this latest seal doesn't.

I really don't see how one of these would accept the stock seal though. The diameter will be bigger and the seal will not be running as designed. Also, I don't have an accurate micrometer and anyway, would they have that EXACT size? On the video the guy mentions "filing" the surface. Really? Filing a seal surface? How would you keep it perfectly round and at the correct depth. This might be beyond my backyard mechanical skills. -BA
