1937 Plymouth front bearing seal dimension

Recommended Posts

I am getting grease from the front wheel bearing onto the brake shoes. The seal is in place but I am wondering what the correct size should be? Also what could I use to clean the shoes? I have heard that gas makes the grease/oil seep into the pads?

Seal shaft diameter 1.734", outside diameter 2.726", width 0.500". National /Timken part #5836, Victor #49237, Mopar 668479. Check for wear groove on the shaft surface, this could be a cause of seal leakage. There is also felt dust washer that seals backing plate, check if it is in good condition. If linings are impregnated with grease, replace them, do not attempt cleaning.
