Re: Need to replace the oil seal on my shredder gear box- How do I find one?
Ther should be (or MAY be) a number stamped into the seal's outer steel ring or on the rubber seal itself,along with a brand name like "Chicaco-Rawhide","National",etc..look it over closely before attempting to remove it,for many times the I.D. numbers get destroyed during removal!..
You can probably pop that seal out with a screwdriver ot brake spoon ,used like a lever,don't hammer it out from behind unless it refuses to pop out,that way it leaves the part numbers intact in most cases,and lets you match it up to a new seal too..some places can supply seals just by giving them the measurements off the shaft it seals,and the housing O.D. and the width,if there is no number on it to go by..
