Need a good seal number... please

Maybe someone's been through this before, (I hope).
It's the B-10 late model, bevel gearbox, right side seal... the one
that holds the ball bearing in place, and which seals against the one
inch sleeve, that rides on the the shaft, eventually belted to the trans.
It's the larger of the three in the gearbox.
The original seal is a Victor #60254, with patten # 2240332.
What was sent to me was a CR seal, # 542016, with a steel ring that is
to be installed behind it to hold the bearing in place... but not my bearing.
The BGB # is 154062, but now see there are different seal sizes depending on
which tractor or model the BGB finds itself in.
So... help is needed... again

There must be thousands out there. Don't know if my BGB was
swapped out once or twice sometime in the past 44 years, but maybe.
I suspect that the manufacturer installed different seals of
different sizes due to availability... just as is done today.
I'll check with a bearing company that I know in Scranton...
they know it all.. and they don't use computers either.

I did find a cross from (Victor # 60254) to (Timken # 471733).

I can get one that is 1/4" thick instead of 0.47-something" thick.
To get the exact seal, at the right thickness, I need to buy 250 of them.
So, I'll have to make a spacer to fit behind the seal to ride against the ball bearing.
Hey... a wheel bearing race might work... looks like machine shop work. To be continued...
