Default 9" Moser shaft seals

Both ends of my 9" are leaking. Not sure if its due to me welding on a truss or not .....

I see there are a few different variations of seals/bearings that are used.

Mine has fluid in the tubes and uses tapper bearings that are not sealed. So it uses the gear oil to lubricate them.

I assume I cannot do this on my own as there is a pressed collar that holes the bearing on, which the seal is behind. Where do you get this done at ?

Jeep is in Kalamazoo as well

The seal is static (non rotating) in the housing and between the bearing and wheel flange. I found that a good layer of RTV solved the problem. As far as removing the bearing, you will pretty much destroy the bearing as it's a tight press fit. You can cut them off with a cutoff wheel or carefully with a torch. Most quality auto parts places can press them back on.

BTW, it doesn't have anything to do with them being Moser's.

It is between the flange & bearing ................. but it seals to the housing bore. RTV it there.

Mine leaked on one side. I tried a couple bearings, seals, retainers, rtv... Everything I could think of without success. Then I talked to BJ at Rock Solid in Cedar Springs and he set me up with bearings that have an o-ring around the outside. I haven't lost a drop of oil since. I don't remember the PN or manufacture, but if you call Rock Solid they can help you. Try the rtv first tho, some people have success with it.

My o-ring style leaked too. Plus it makes a thinner cross section and I broke the outer race on 2 different bearings.
