FTD rear axel seals

Recommended Posts


Make sure you wrap the axle tube with packaging tape or an old microfiche card. Sliding the seal over the keyways or snap ring groove will very likely wreck the seal. You will want a piece of tubing that matches the diameter of the seal to drive it into the housing. Make sure it is nice and square/true on the end so you don't dent the seal or get it in crooked.

Ditto on TimJr's method. I used a piece of schedule 40 PVC pipe (I can't remember the size) from the $1.00 scrap pile at a Home Depot. Make sure the seal driver end is sanded/filed flat and square. A few wraps of wax paper around the axle tube works a treat too for protecting the seal lip when installing.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
