Thanks guys. I really enjoy the challenge of finding & fixing things like this. Once I got started on it, I couldn't stop until I found out what the problem was.Yeah, great troubleshooting, you should be up and running shortly. :thThumbsU
Those seals are readily available. Not sure why you would have to wait? I usually keep at least a dozen on hand. Make sure you put grease on the seal lip and when you replace the bearing plate install a new gasket using no sealant at all except on the plate bolt threads.Thanks guys. I decided that I'd better wait & get a new seal when it's available. If the bearing fit is that tight, the old seal very well may get damaged or destroyed when removing the old bearing.
