Yeah - One look at having to integrate all of that wiring and I passed. I'd be hunting electrical gremlins for 3 years.
I don't have the part numbers for the bearings themselves but Cruiser Teq (Cruiser Outfitters) sells full seal/bearing kits. Partsouq also has a great search function that will allow you to find part numbers based on assembly drawings. There is a paper gasket between the drive flange of the axle and the hub on the rear full float axles, just had mine open last week.Hi guys, incredible amount of great information here. I looked through the chain but could not find part numbers for inner and outer bearings and seals for rear full floating axle. I have 97 with center diff lock only. Rear axle is leaking behind dust cover. I found the inner Timken numbers but need outer bearing and seal part numbers. Is there also a paper gasket involved? Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you!
No sealant. The paper gasket is the gasket.Awesome info. Thanks guys! Wise to apply sealant to the front and back of the paper gasket? If so, which brand/type?
Yeah you don't need sealant, just a new gasket and CLEAN surfaces. When you remove the axle shaft scrape off any old gasket material that remains and clean up both surfaces (the axle flange and the hub surface). I removed the hub entirely so I used steel wool. If you're not taking the hub off be careful what you use as bits of the steel wool will shed and get into the bearings/hub. The point is to make sure the new gasket seals properly. Having clean mating surfaces is the way to get there.Awesome info. Thanks guys! Wise to apply sealant to the front and back of the paper gasket? If so, which brand/type?
