Default rear axle seals

I am looking for a good part number for the rear axle seals on an FC. The axel number is R155NC34, which doesn't come up on a search.

I have a mobile mechanic coming to help pull off the rear drums and inspect them before heading West to the mountains. I never felt the coach had enough stopping power, but most folks agree that the FC's brakes are wanting. Anyway, if we pull things apart it seems a wise idea to do the seals while it is apart. So I need a good part number to go and pick them up this week.

The plan is to pull it apart and determine drums are needed. If not we can change the seals and put it back togeather. If parts are needed I will get them during the week and finish the job on the next weekend.


Anyone have one?

These seals will be readily cross referenced when you pull them out. Nappa or a truck parts supplier will have them in stock. That's what I did.

Jerry,
The problem is I am doing it on Sunday, if I don't have them I may need to wait a week to finish the job.

I always thought the brakes were rather good on a FC

The drums are out board mounted,which means the drum will slide off without pulling the hubs,axles and disturbing the seals.
Of course you may be wanting to check bearings?

Randy,
That is the plan. No sense in getting that far and not checking the bearings. And once you do that it is not smart to re-use the old seals.
