I'd appreciate any suggestions on installation. Right now I'm trying to decide if I should just put the old style in or to get another new seal. I have ruined two seals so far and need to improve my installation success.

Thanks in advance!


I think I also had to taper the end of the seal shell to get them started. Where that light blue area is. I just used a thin coat of RTV to replace the moulded on light blue stuff.

Dana has a lot of their service manuals online. I didn't scour it to see if the inner seals are covered in depth, but it should come in handy for reference, torque specs, etc.

Is there a part number or name to get the 2 parts inner seals?

I think the PN for the single piece seals is 36487.

What type of wheel nut socket is needed? I have read about how it takes 3 tries from the auto part stores to get it right.

I put a couple pictures here of the two different kinds of spindle nuts I've seen in the hubs. There's a four-prong socket and a rounded hex socket. I believe the four prong lock nut assembly came with factory manual locking hubs and I believe the rounded hex came with factory auto locking hubs. Someone correct me if I'm wrong here.

The two inner seal part numbers I've found are 36487 for the original style one piece and 52148 for the newer super duty style two piece. I gather there's a metal lip that has to be ground off the two piece seal and it's still a bit more work to get it pressed in correctly. Based on a lot of reading here and a few PMs I'm not sure the two piece is worth the extra work, hard to say.

Good luck with the seals.
