I am putting my half-shaft back together

I assume that the outer oil seal (GHS184) should fit snug around the hub (which it doesn't).

Can anybody confirm this.

I have measured the hub diameter at 33.5 (ish).

The seal supplied by Rimmers (GHS184) is 36 47 7

This is the same as the TR7 but Obviously is wrong.

Has anybody sourced these from any where else?

I have found a 32 - 47 - 7 and a 1 5/16 - 1 7/8 - 5/16 imperial.

Surely someone has fitted these before - where did you get yours from ?

When I did mine on my 1850 I bought the kit from Canley Classics, although I was only changing the hub seal. I still have the box containing Bearing, pin and another seal, it's a Trupart Wheel Bearing Kit TBK012 or as on box top GHK1007. The seal I have remaining has the numbers SC24 47 10

Managed to get a seal that seems to fit.

33 47 8 . May be worth making a note of.

You can use the gearbox nose seal on a Sprint axle for a nice tight fit though assume the 1300/1500/1850 shaft will be smaller diameter.

I buy my seals from:
