Front and Rear hub seals - Sherborne

Post by Duckling » Tue Apr 06, 2021 3:05 pm

Hi Friends
I am having to do some work on the brakes on my 1936 Austin 10 Sherborne. I will be fitting new linings, but the hub seals are all weeping and allowing some oil to get into the brake drums. I note that the seals' original spec. are leather. Does anyone know if modern replacements seals, possibly made of neoprene, oar similar, are available please. I feel they may be more efficient/longer lasting than the original types. Also I would appreciate the make and reference number of such seals if possible please.
Thanks
Duckling.

There is a choice of rear seals but for the front only leather. Suggest you contact ATDC Spares. https://parts.austintendriversclub.com/shop/
