Is there any way to measure for an oil seal without haveing the original seal can I simply measure the shaft diameter that the seal seals around to get the inside diameter for a new oil seal or does the seal have to be slightly smaller than the diameter of the shaft to get a proper seal?

As long as you have the shaft size, bore size and approximate thickness you're good. Keep in mind tho there's a lot of different styles of seals, double, single lip etc. as well as composition, not that it'll probably matter unless it's an odd application. Just be prepared if the supplier asks you some questions.......Mike
