Differential Steering Band Seals


M29

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone knows where I can locate the tapered seals that go around the steering band shafts 900677 on the weasel differential also the tapered seals that go around the 4 steering band bolts that are located on the differential housing. Mine just fell apart. I was thinking maybe a rubber o ring would suffice. Any thoughts??

@M29 Dan, Gary Scechy's excellent article on the final drive makes mention on his solution to your problem. In my case I machined out of Nylon stock a very close fitting tapered collar/seal that pushed onto the shaft. Same deal for the brake band shafts. Time will tell if these work. On the other bolts etc, I too used O rings. Cheers

We should put this article in the documents tab so it's easy to find. It's very well written and contains some very useful knowledge!

Hi Dan, did you wind up using the O rings in place of the tapered seals? Im in the same predicament now. I just had the steering bands relined and am putting the rear end back together. But as your tapered seals disintegrated, so did mine. How did you make out?
