Many of those seals were made by only one or two companies. Most had a number stamped on them. It will require careful removal, but if you can read the number most parts houses can cross reference them, or just match the size.

Hi, thanks for the reply. My seals are out in on piece. But they do not have a part number anywhere. My part stores can not find anything. They both went off measurements to the seal, with nothing that comes up. Only option I have is to find someone in U.S.A with parts. Like I said in Canada we have no part stores who sell this old stuff. Our napa stores don't carry anything truck or ag relations

Andrew, one other thought, I don't know about REO, but as you probably know, the rear axle assemblies for many trucks were made by just a few companies, such as Dana, Spicer, etc. If there is any ID at all on the rear axle, that may help. I know, you may have already checked that possibility, but it's just a thought. I also did a Google search on REO trucks, found that in 1957 REO became a subsidiary of White Motor Co. White merged REO with Diamond T which became Diamond-REO. Later, White Motor Co. was taken over by Volvo who currently owns the REO brand name. Sometimes by following a "trail" like this you can find that the current owner of a brand can supply parts. As I said, just some thoughts. You might like to check REO out on Google, it's interesting. Sorry I can't be of more help, If I find anything further I will let you know. Lowell.

Hi Lowell thanks for the tips I'll check my local Volvo dealer. The rear end in my truck is a detroit-timken rear axel. It's stamped DTRA on the back as we'll it has 5.66 gears
