== Correct Spindle sealing==

OK, I've got a Dana 30 which got water into it and the entire hub and bearing got completely wasted. Now I am rebuilding it all, but I DON'T think I have all the right seals still for the spindle specifically.

In this attached picture (spindle bearing seal and washer kit), I have the spindle bearing and the v-seal (smallest one). BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE BIGGER 2. I have never had these. Also, in the exploded view (link below), I do not have the metal piece (not numbered) just in front of the knuckle. Where does this mount to?

So here are my questions:
- Do I need those other 2 seals?
- What do they mount to?
- What is the metal flange in the exploded view?

Any help is appreciated.

Edit: I've added a picture of my axle (not that the metal plate thing is not there). And one of the back of the spindle empty.

Re: == Correct Spindle sealing==

The larger seal and plastic thrust washer in your picture above go on the stub axle and ride against the back of the spindle. The metal piece you are asking about is just the backer for the seals and sits against the flare for the u-joint.

Hey Will, is the backing plate, large seal and thrust washer, something I could find at a good parts store? I'm guessing yes on the seal and washer, but no to the backing plate.

Thanks, that helps. I Guess I know likely now why I had the problem to begin with.

Try this.... I think that it's everything you need.

<u>NAPA Bearings Spindle Bearing Kit - Front Wheel</u>

Also the Car Quest PN# is SBK-1, but the number on the bag inside is 706527X. Should be able to cross one of those numbers over where ever you go.

Re: == Correct Spindle sealing==

Most welcome... yep I'll be there. I have a feeling somehow that there will be an excess of beer or some very sore heads on Sunday morning... likely both.
