OK, looks like the SKF seal is 17907 => inside diameter = 45.01mm, => speedi-sleeve part# is 99177 (standard) or 99830 ("gold" higher quality / longer lasting).
The SKF website and the speedi-sleeve catalog both caution that the correct size is determined by measuring the shaft, I can't do that until I take the hub off. I called local auto parts warehouse, Parks, and they carry the Timken equivalent of the SKF speedi-sleev and have the same size and the next size up and down in stock, so the odds are good that when I take the hub off, I can buy the repair sleeve kit (about $40) the same day and get the car back on the road quickly. I called several local bearing supply places, including two that are SKF distributors, and they don't keep ANY repair sleeves in stock. "We can get that for you in a couple days" doesn't cut it. I do not want to take the car out of service to remove and measure the hub, order the sleeve, wait 2-3 days and then put it all back together. ------------- Max Charleston SC On Thu, Aug 13, 2015 at 9:15 AM, Meade Dillon <dillonm...@gmail.com> wrote: > Curly, Rick, Craig; > > Thanks!
