The black thing at the bearing end of the axle tube ? shaped like a doughnut with little slots init?
Threw mine away, kept flopping over and getting in the way.
I figure there's a seal in there to do the job.
Only black thing I can think of.

There is an axle seal at the end of the tube, it is rubber with a metal ring that presses in the end of the tube. If old and brittle, it could seem like a piece of plastic. There is an oil seal protector behind the axle seal. If you are missing a seal, this could be what you see. You need the seal intact and also the protector behind it. If you don't have these in there, you will have drive lubricant running out the end of your axle.
