scout rear axle bearing seals

I have come to understand that there are two kinds of scout rear axle wheel bearings. The timken tapered bearings with a seperate bearing and cup (which came with both the scouts I have - '73 &'74), and a one piece bearing. I understand the two piece bearing is lubed by regular greasing, whereas the one piece is lubed by differential fluid flowing down the tubes. I like the idea of greas lubing the bearings. My question is: should I put the inboard axle seal in place and use the one piece bearing (then the outer seal)? Are these bearings not made to be lubed by grease? Do they need diff. fluid? I was only able to get a one piece tapered timken bearing. Any input would be appreciated. thanks jamey williams.

Re: scout rear axle bearing seals

There are two types of bearings, but you can use either type. So yes you can use the type with the inner seal which relies on grease applied to the bearing. If you need part numbers I got the bearing numbers from Jim Weed's page at this site. Let me know if you need part numbers for the seals, I think I have them at home.
