  • 1950 8N Rear Two Seal Axle Bearing Lubrication
  • I have been thinking about an upcoming repair on my axle seals on my 1950 8N.Thinking about the design changes which included an inner and outer axle seal.How was the outer axle shaft bearing intended to get lubrication after the design change?I have seen posts that say the bearing should be greased, others say the gear oil does the lubrication.

  • You should use grease at first. The bearing will still get oil though.

  • The late design 8N/NAA rear axle bearing must be packed. It is not lubricated with rear axle oil unless the inner oil seal is leaking, in which case the brakes will be lubricated as well.

    The outer seal is not an oil seal, but rather, a grease seal intended to help keep the bearing grease from the brakes.

  • I guess that you are saying that the inner seal does not seal?

  • It will seal. Just been a while since working on it and was thinking oil got to the bearing.
