'56 Safari Bearing Seals Needed

Anyone know of a source for 2 replacement seals? The info on the 2 original seals say: Trostel and #300-156-6F and it is a felt style seal. Thanks!

Airstream has not had that seal for many years.

A good replacement is National # 290944.

The O. D. is 3.002, it's 3/8 inches thick and the ID is 1.875 inches.

I have no idea.

We have not had them for years, and neither has Airstream.

You might try seal and bearing distributors, in your part of the country.

Sorry, I could not be of more help.

Your 52 year old axles are likely good. The 52 year old leaf springs may need some replacemenr.

There is a Redneck in Albany. However you might want to use the phone and not the road. That white stuff is kinda prevelant.

I also found out that the Trostel seal is on a 1964 Globetrotter I am working on. The NAPA seal is 18808 is only 1/4" in width.

Its strange, the NAPA # 18808 seal does not match up.

I WAS WRONG. I have a B-324-16-6 Trostel bearing seal on my 1964 Globetrotter. Cross referenced it is a National Oil Seal # 22550. Best of luck to all looking for seals.

I just saw that Trostel on our parts counter.

I measured 1.50 ID x 3.00 OD x .37 high

Try Chicago Rawhide seal # 15241

Metal body with rubber lip seal. Type/Style CRSA1

Have a good day!
