What can I use to fix a bad hub seal surface on a 14 bolt?

    I've replaced the hub seal on my 14 bolt twice and it still spews oil so I think the seal surface is messed up. I've read the article on pirate where billavista used some sleeves to alleviate the problem but I was wondering if there were any other options to consider. Where can I get those sleeves? I need to get this done soon because I'm losing all my royal purple oil and that **** is expensive.

    Or you can go to a bearing house for a speedy sleeve, need to measure diameter and width of the sealing surface. They work great.

    If you have a deep groove on the sealing surface, then I don't think emery cloth will work, the sleeve is the repair. If there is no groove or a small one then the emery cloth should do the trick.

    Prepare your wallet for the speedy-sleeve. Especially if you screw it up and end up buying another one.

    Sure can, But i would use the seal first as i have welded on the spring perches for the correct angle and shaves the Pig. More work than i would want to go through again.

    I have actually thought about getting a new housing b/c the threads on one spindle of the one I have are kinda boogered up. The only problem with that is, it would cost me $300 to get the gears done, plus $40 for spring perches and another $40 or so for u-bolts. Then there is the downtime of the burb, plus I will not be going home to my shop from school for about 4 months so I think I'm **** outta luck as far as a new housing goes for now. I'll speedy sleeve the bitch and see if that does the trick.
