Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Replacement seal only- for Model T Neoprene outer grease seals for rear axle
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By John Doolittle on Thursday, September 24, 2015 - 03:14 pm:

I have accumulated a number of Model T Neoprene outer grease seals for rear axle (see pic).

The vendors all sell the seal assembly as a kit but I have been unable to find a vendor that sells only the replacement neoprene seal, less the alum housing.

Has anyone on the forum been able to cross the number to a seal only that can be purchased at a local parts store??

John , Try Kaman Bearing. They will most likely have them. Don

You got a cross reference number?
That's the problem. I went to 2 bearing stores this morning. The seal has a part number on it that is not listed in their charts.

Without me knowing a substitute number that they can pulled from the shelf nobody wants to research a $5 part.

So the only alternative is to pay $36 and shipping for the kit from a T parts vendor. Or, go felt.

I called Langs earlier and they would not divulge any info. Its a secret, I guess.

John - What is the number on the bad seal?

Why not use the seal dimensions and a seal catalog on the Internet?

JD- The Number is NAK TC 26 40 7 1
I put spaces as they are spaced on the seal.

As Ted said, my local bearing supplier just measures up the dimensions and Bob's your uncle!

NAK is a Chinese seal manufacturer. TC is a double lip seal with a garter spring, the id is 26 mm and the od is 40 mm.

Amazon has them, your local bearing house probably does also, just ask a different clerk next time.

Can also get them from Grainger, part# 36LX10. A little more money at $6.27, but it is another source at least.

FWIW, I was taught to fill the gap, where the garter spring is, with grease before installing this type of seal. That prevents the spring from jumping out of place when driving the seal in.

I agree with Ted & Chad.
A couple more part numbers for reference:

TCM (Dichtomatik) PN: 26X40X7TC

SKF (Chicago Rawhide) PN: 10183
