Trying to locate a rear wheel seal for the ol"e Dodge. Axle is Timkin (deep) (double) reduction, 2 speed. Not sure what terminology is correct. Air brakes. Seal presses on the housing, has a hard rubber strip on the OD facing the hub. The hub has a grooved area that seats against the seal. Seal is 4-3/4" ID X 6-3/8" OD. Victor # A2-1205-V-542. Cannot locate one anywhere. Any ideas?

See if that Victor # crosses to Stemco 309-0973. if it does Amazon says they have them.

Duner: Thanks for the reply. I gave our seal supplier the number you supplied & he has 1. The Stemco seal is 2 piece. With it all together, the bore is too small, but with the inner piece removed, it sounds like it will work. He is sending it, so we will see. Thanks again.

John, If the seal supplied is incorrect there are more options. Do a search for your Victor # with out the dashes. You will probably end up with a Rockwell # that in turn crosses to a National # 5473 with cone 726 or 758. Some how or another this is more difficult than it should be.

Duner: Got the seal and will work with the steel, inner piece removed, because the ID of the steel piece is too small. With the inner piece removed, the iD of the seal is like any other seal & will seal on the axle housing, except that the old seal also was steel on the ID and pressed on the axle housing, but was a larger ID. This seal also has the rubber outer ring that seals against the hub, and that dimension is OK, so all is well. Thanks again.
