Wheel bearing seals

Hi all,

the seals on our wheel bears seal (on our '59 Tradewind) are leaking a little grease into the brake drum.

Part number looks to be 291148 made in the USA.

Looking for help in locating two of these seals to replace the leaky ones.

We have records that go way back, but I could not find a listing for that seal number.

Please provide some accurate dimensions and I will continue the search.

Steve,

Take it out and bring it to your local auto suppy. They can reference the number or cross reference it to get the appropriate seal for you.

Most times they have them in stock or can get them overnight.

Assuming it is a 3 inch diameter seal as both my 54 and 61 were here are a couple numbers to try that I found on my trailers.

National 203034
Chicago Rawhide 18808

The best fit I found was a seal from Trailer hitch, hitches and bike rack (800)298-8924 which I got to by referencing other numbers. It is 3.005 diameter. I don't have their part number here but the E trailer number does cross ref. back to kelsey hayes We are travelling right now and I don't have all my notes. At least one of the other numbers is 2.998 diameter and might work loose if no adhesive is put on it.

A google search for your part number should bring up numerous cross reference guides as well as some airforums threads

I also found that E trailer was the only source for drive in dust caps to fit my 61 which are 2.25 diameter
UPDATE: This is the etrailer seal

If your seal is not 3 inch diameter just ignore most of what I wrote
