    I'm trying to reinstall my front rotor, after having it turned, I swapped in an 8 lug 10 bolt. I don't know what year it was out of. I destroyed the inner grease seal (the one inside the inner bearing) trying to get it out so it could be turned. Now I can't find what part it is. the .5 ton seal is to small, the 1 ton seams to large. anyone know what year, or what vehicle came with those 8 lug fronts? or what seal I'm looking for?

    well if its a 10 bolt, the 1 ton seal is out. If its 8 lug, the half ton seal is out. That leaves us with 3/4 ton. If its a 10 bolt, its a 78 or later.. I would try a 78 K20 front wheel bearing seal, outer. The "inner" seal will be the one by the ring & pinion carrier by the pumpkin. It shouldnt be that hard to find. let us know what happens

    Both 1/2 and 3/4 Ton use the same seal. Are you sure the seal area of the hub is not damaged from some kind of previous failure ?
