    recap...

    noticed some play in the bearings on the driver side front hub. bent the seal a bit removing it to check the rear most bearing. bearings were a little scored. found new bearings and races at napa. nobody had a replacemant seal. was able to reshape old seal and reuse.

    lesson of the day... replacing the races in a warn hub conversion can be a pain.

    That sucks....but assuming it is a lip seal (or a loaded lip seal), you can measure the OD of the seal, OD of the shaft, and the thickness of the seal, and use those numbers to cross it. Of course, it is probably too late in the day by now anyway.....sorry I couldn't be more help....

    what did you do, brian?
    which seal is it?
    the one that gets hammered onto the axle shaft?
    if this is the case, [not that it will do you any good at this time] "you now who" has one or more of those

    Just pull the numbers off of it and look it up in the local auto parts store cross reference book (assuming you can find someone who knows which book has the cross-chart in it).
