'29 AA Front wheel grease seal

Post by rugb » January 5th, 2012, 7:32 pm

This may have been bought up before, but my question is, is there a seal/slinger/retainer used to hold the grease in on the front inside bearing? Reassembling mine today, I seem to not have that part (been apart too long) Ordered them for an A axle but too small. And does someone sell what I need? Thanks

I'm restoring a 29 AA, I removed the front hub and looked at it. There is no seal or slinger, it has a baffle, the hub slides over the baffle about 1/4", the hub measures about 2.625 inside and the baffle measures about 2.620 OD, thats only .005" clearance, thats your seal against dirt getting in.

No st eal needed. The "cup" keeps the grease in.
