Just mounted the front tires on my '14. Was packing the bearings ind wanted to put new wheel seals on them. Looked in the Snyder catalogue and it didn't list seals for '14. 19 to 27 was all it had.Called Snyder's and he said the older front hubs were different. What should I do???

Langs has them listed on page 31. They are called Front Dust Caps. They also have a modern Neoprene cap as well.

Are you referring to the dust cap / seal on the inside of the hub?

If you're doing an authentic restoration you can buy felt retainers for '09-'18 marked with your wheel manufacturers name: http://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/front-hub-dust-seal-retainer

If you just wants a good seal, you can buy modern neoprene seals that's advertised to fit '09-'27: https://www.modeltford.com/item/2841N.aspx

I guess this new generation call a wheel seal a dust cap. Kinda like calling a mechanic a service tech.
What kind of sealer r u guys using to seal a dust cover to the hub?

Wheel seal and dust cap are two different items. Read Roger's post again. Both are a press fit on the back of the hub. There's no "sealer" used.
