Smile Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

Hi All,

I looked closely again and tried to displace something in that area but it appears to be...

Thisi thread really belongs on the HAMB as my car is a rod but I figured there would be more knowledge over here on this subject. That being said I have a lot going on in order to pull the axles off...

Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

I looked really closer with a lens and there definitely isn't a seal in there. These are 35-36 bells on an otherwise '40 rear. I don't know if that changes the scenario any.

Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

I think the flange gets pushed in flush to the housing and the lip gets pushed in the gap between the axle and housing however it would be a pretty tight fit

Which pic is correct? Either way the keyway interrupts the seal.
Thanks in advance.

Re: '51 Woodie tail light and parking lenses?

Phil,
I guess I got a bit confused as I saw wagon tail lights being glass and the front parking lights being offered as plastic and glass.
