I assume they were the correct ones as he probably gave you NOS seals.

Dont really know why it leaks even worse......
Guess you can always replace them again LOL


i dont think they were, because he ordered them and had them made

thats the way i did it and it leaks worse than it did before i replaced it....


When replacing the large seal, it is important to de-burr the leading edges of the hub before sliding it back into the seal.

Often, the end of the hub would develop a sharp edge or burr that would cut the new seal, if you did not de-burr.

The two square tangs that protude on the end of the hub, also need to be de-burred.

If the seal is not installed squarely into the housing, it will distort and leak.

If the hub is worn where the lip of the seal rides, leakage will continue.

If the bushing that the hub rides in is worn, the seal will leak.

What I did on mine was just take some fine grit sand paper and smooth out the rough edges

Yes, you can use a file, a sharpning stone, or sandpaper, as Brian said. ...........You don't need to remove a lot of material, you just want to slightly chamfer any sharp edges.
