Ooopps. I think I screwed up. I partially disassembled my spare '68 3:18 rear axle for cleaning and sand blasting and after removing the axles I pried the rubber seals in front of the bearings out. Uh-oh. I'm not talking about the skinny o-ring seals, I mean the BIG rubber seals in front of the bearings. I'm pretty sure they were worn/torn, so whether I screwed myself by destroying them getting them out, the fact remains that they need to be replaced. I don't see any mention of this rubber seal in the OGTS catalog and have not seen them mentioned in a thread.
Is this rubber seal impossible to get? Is there a substitute? I could use another c-clip for the end of the axle, too. The last 1/4" of one of mine snapped off getting the axles out.
