parts needed for axles seal replacement ?

Post by AlexB »

I have oil leaking from the hub onto the inside of the wheel. The brakes are rubbish so I am pretty certain that the oil seal(s) are in need of replacement, along with the brake linings

Other than brake shoes, inner and outer seals and (possibly) bearings, what else will I need ? Any gaskets ?

The PO told me that it had had new brake shoes relatively recently, but not sure how in depth this operation was.

Is there a better supplier of parts. If it is anything like old land rover spares, the quality is not as good as original

many thanks

Do you know if it has the press-on bearing retainers or the nut type? Either way you will need some access to tools - either a shop press and a gas torch or a large adjustable wrench.
you know it's a classic when people stop to watch.
