WTB 7.5 Bearings and Seals

Post by nzwinrz » Fri Feb 05, 2016 11:01 pm

Starting to get seepage around drive flanges on my 7.5 LSD. Think its time to source the seals and maybe fresh bearing while I'm in there. Is there a good source here state side, before I order from abroad? Thinking of just tear down, get numbers off old seals and bearing, then trace down locally.

Any thoughts?

One more thing, anyone got the carrier tool for the bearing preloading?

Not really, blew it off at the time, been sitting waiting for attention last 3yrs. Now that I just got reminded I'll be back to sourcing parts. Got them marked on ebay from UK but thinking of just tearing into it and finding the numbers I need to source locally. The pre-load tool I haven't decided on yet.

Well, I am also asking around for info and no one seems to have any. I have this diff, as well. Needs the o-rings replaced, which I have. I'm told if the seals aren't leaking and the bearings aren't howling to not worry about it. The "source" for info seems to be Chris Grayson at MC2Racing. He could probably get you the part numbers and such. I did buy the adjuster tool from MC2. Seems to be really well made.

It should be the same as our own non-LSD 7.5" stuff. I bought new ones for one that I thought was LSD. It wasn't. So I have the pinion seal, the side seals and the rubber orings for the adjusters. I'd sell them for $40, shipped. I got them from Jeff at MPM just a week or two ago.
