Still waiting on the parts I ordered on 5/14 from Jacks.

 

I did a little searching but can't find the answer to, Where does the felt seal GO?

 

On my GT19 that I'm replacing the rear axle bearing, there was a felt seal on the outside of the hub and Caliper Mounting Plate

 

on the other rear end I bought without hubs the felt seal was inside behind the Caliper Mounting Plate, I was thinking it may have ended up there when Joes Outdoor Power power washed it.

 

my best guess playing around with the pieces is, it gets inserted into the outboard side of the bearing cone, inside the cage that holds the rollers, then the Caliper Mounting Plate is bolted on, then the hub.

I think there is a good diagram in the parts manual. I will see if I can find it for you.

I looked in the old repair manual, 1974-1975 before they had brakes, seat switches, interlocks, and when they had the good tapered roller bearing (Timken) front wheels, the felt seal is shown on the outside.

Now that my grass is going to seed. I sent Jacks a message stating I checked the Ariens 03164200 gasket on a few other sites, they said it was no longer available, they replied.

Unfortunately this is NLA from the supplier. I will delete this off of your order, credit your card, and ship the order as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

While sitting around waiting and pondering, I thought why not an O-Ring.

grabbed my box of Harbor Freight O-Rings

and came up with a 326 3/16 thick 1-5/8 ID 2 OD

Don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. 

Then again a 327 3/16 x 1-3/4 x 2-1/8 could work as well but it only gets expanded a little
