Dana 44 seals

I have a 1972 Dana 44 and it call for a inner seal, but
when you look a a newer Dana 44 it does not call for a inner
seal. Without the seal the outer bearing would get lubed better. Are the outer seals different between the older and newer rear ends?
Thanks

Re: Dana 44 seals

well i know there is a difference.. my friend had an 86 cj with the d44 rear.. and he didnt have any inner seals on it.. we always thought that to be odd..
had never seen that before.. most of them that i know of.. have an inner seal

Re: Dana 44 seals

Do a search on this, I know I've mentioned it before. There are 2 different D44's, one that uses a greased bearing set and another that uses an oiled (from pumpkin) set. These are the only differences, but they're not interchangeable.

Re: Dana 44 seals

Check the IH forum. They discussed this in depth. Most posters there believe you can go either way - let the axle bearings be lubed by oil after they are installed grease packed OR use the inner seal and have the axle bearings only grease lubed. I don't know the answer.

Re: Dana 44 seals

i myself would put the inner seals in.. if you can.. should be flat in there.. with alittle rig.. depending how much gear oil is in there.. they may not always get lubed.. so i would rather have a seal.. and have mass amounts of grease in there..
