Having problems with your 1987 Ford F 250 ?

1986 F250 4X4 inner rear wheel seal is not stock

\015 There is an extra piece pressed onto the spindle where the inner seal should wipe on the spindle. I suspect the seal surface got damaged, requiring a repair kit. There is no markings on the seal. The OD of the old seal is stock diameter. But the ID of the seal is about 200 thousandths larger than the stock seal. It is on a 1986 F250 4X4 Supercab HD. With a Ford full floating axle. With a 10.25 ring gear. I have been so far unable to locate a replacement seal. Any sugestions? Other than replacing the axle.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 30-11-2020

Answers :

You can carefully remove the old sleeve, careful not to damage the surface underneath, inspect and assess the damage underneath. Possibly it can be repaired properly with medium then fine emery cloth polishing the surface. If there is a groove deep enough that your thumbnail catches on it, you might need to install a new sleeve. Research the brands and install the thinnest one possible. You may also be able to drive the seal in deeper or shallower to locate it in a different position on the spindle. It would only need 1/8 to 3/16" difference. Please post your results, hope this helps.
