Perfect double lip oil seals & extra V - seals

Post by bobassel » Fri May 19, 2006 6:27 pm

Hello

A tip for you all;
I use , to keep the water out of my GPA bearings & diferential,
special double lip oil seals from "EBELE".
Type; NE 8378. size; 53.98 x 73.04 x9.52 RP.
Image
As extra seal I use V-rings.
S.K.F. ; V-55 A.

Succes! (At my GPA hardly a drop comes in)

Steering lnuckle kit 908226

Post by bobassel » Sat Apr 07, 2007 5:52 pm

As an extra for the front axle I use this extra set.
It is a modern CJ 5 knuckle set which is better than the original ones!
South African Owner Eugen Nick used it in (now) my GPA!
The Ex -Mexican GPA of Peter Verhoeven was fitted with
the same seals!
In combination with the dubble lip seals and V-seals it is a
perfect way to keep the water out of your front axle.
The number is ; 908226 for two wheels.

Dear Bob

Thanks for your posts on oil seals. Would you by chance have a list of recommandation for all oil seals of the GPA (modern references like for SKF seen on two posts).

Thanks

Bearings & seals

Post by bobassel » Tue Jun 05, 2007 9:22 pm

Jerome

There are here in Holland several adresses were this problem can be solved.
You must have the original bearing or seal and take this to this shop or adres.
I 'm sure there is a sollution for your problem.

Thanks Bob

I did it here for my GPA, I took it to a shop where they adapt metric seals to the GPA parts.

Again, thanks a lot for the amazing job of putting the list together.

Cheers
