Need Bearing Seal Part Number for '66 Safari

I have a 1966 Safari 22' which needs new bearing seals.
The numbers on the existing seals is unreadable.
Does anyone know the part number and supplier?

If you can't find a number most bearing supply houses can match the seal if you can bring it in. If the wipe is damaged you'll need to mic the spindle diameter.

Any better Auto parts store( NAPA ) ect. can also match it up.

If all else fails you can call Dexter or Henschen and ask them.

If it's a "felt" grease seal, the number is National 292100, but has not been made for years. At best, that seal was terrible.

We carried a substitute for them in the past, that was neoprene.

But, suddenly the manufacturer said you must buy 500 of them, and at a cost way out of the ball park.

Then Airstream stepped in and ordered them, only to find out that the replacement they received was about 1/4 inch too large.

At this point in time, Airstream and Inland RV are not interested in buying 500, when many of the old axles have been replaced, and that sales for that seal would be a dozen a year or so.

The only long term solution, is to wait until the old axles fail, and replace them. New axles use different types of grease seals.

NAPA does not have a replacement, nor does anyone else, for that matter.

Hey RH

I talked to a couple of buddys of mine. and Question came up.
are those 10 or 12 inch brakes? Single or Dual axle?

They also asked ID and OD of where the bearing seal fits in and also the shaft size. If you can give me these figures I might be able to get you a part number or actual part.

We have come up with some old parts and cross refferences for old cars.(20's30's40's50's) and a few old trailers we tow behind these cars.

Let me know if you can come up with those numbers.

seals

A 66 22 foot Airstream uses 12 inch brakes.

The original grease seal was made by National, and it's number is 292100.

A replacement is available, if you want tp buy 500.

Ok heres what I found;

Chicago Rawhide or C.R. part # is 13892 at $15.99 each.
Available at NAPA

TCM makes a seal substitue also. This 1 seal TCM21325TB is the replacement for 291148 but that may be wrong for this application. Books are old and unclear that far back.

I have also learned that OASIS Rv.. I dont have anymore info may have the right seal in stock also.

When I called my buddy at NAPA he said he can get his next day.

Hope this helps you. This is supposed to be common on the 60's axle.

grease seal

Should someone, anyone, find a correct replacement for the national 292100 grease seal, please post that information, so others can take advantage of that information.

Beware, that as of few days ago, no known dimensional replacement information was available to Airstream, as per our conversation with them, other than the 500 piece quantity, which they rejected.

On November 26th, when I return to my office, I will post the dimensions of that seal.

rhmorgan - I'm not exactly sure about your trailer, but for my 1954 25' Cruiser, the NAPA part number is 18264. Worked fine for me.
Good luck.

N.A.P.A does a fine job cross refing parts and they have always come threw for me.

They are very reliable also.

Thanks to all of you who have offered information. I appreciate the information.
The tralier is 250 miles away, so it will take time for me to get measurements.
I do know the seals are felt. They weren't leaking. We just thought when we packed the bearings, changing the seals was manditory.
I will follow up on the suggestions you've provided. Thanks, again.

Grease seal.

The National grease seal, part # 292100, used a felt seal instead of neoprene.

Replacements are avaiable, if you wish to buy 500 of them.

As promised, the specs on the 292100, are:

ID = 2.25 inches

OD = 3.269 inches

Thickness = .375 inches.

The replacement is made by TCM, and their part # is 223263TB.
