If you can get the old seal out in one piece and without mangling it too much you might be able to take it in to your local auto parts store and they might be able to match it up for you.

Are you near a larger Metropolitan area? I live about 35 miles from Des Moines, and can't tell you how many times in my youth, my dad gave me some ugly beat up unidentifiable bearing , grease seal or Belt and sent me to Des Moines to "Standard Bearing" Dad did landscape and grading work and was always finding some obsolete piece of equipment to fix and use.
They would get out their Calipers and books and never failed to come up with the part that matched.

So if you have a bearing supply house(Most Cities will have one) in the area they can probably find a match even without a part number.

I had almost forgot them, but Sunday Night my brother was telling me they were the cheapest place to get a belt for one of my mowers.

This may already be OBE (overcome by events), but I posted a Timken seal reference under the "manuals" section. It gives cross references to other seals, as well as dimensional information... hope this helps.

Use a dial caliper to check the tube the seal fits in to get the outer diameter, then measure the sealing face of the shaft. Then measure the thickness of the seal. Armed with these measurements, a good seal supply will match you right up. Take what's left of the old seal with you too.

I'll 4th the notion, take the old one to any good bearing supplier and they can get you another seal. Theres really no such thing as a seal for one specific brand of tractor. All kinds of seals have been made over the yrs that just fit shafts of whatever size, most of them are still being used, just not on a Sears tractor.

That's the way I do it sometimes.
