Are Cable Locker Swivel Hub Seal kits readily available?

Unread post by 12HT 61 » August 23rd, 2016, 6:12 am

Hi all!!

Just wondering if anyone knows if the seal kits for the above are readily available?

Pulled it all apart yesterday and when I went to put it back together I realised the seals for the backing plate were different to the one I got in the kit. The local bearing place is unaware of any different seals.

I haven't been in to see Mr Toyota (which I will have to do today) but was hoping someone out there could shed some light.

The axles themselves have come from a different vehicle, but they seem to be more heavy duty. They are factory cable lockers from a Jap import VX HJ61 1986.

Thanks in advance

Different axles should not effect swivel hub seals and the swivel hubs are universal to diffs with or without cable lockers. Perhaps you have been sent the wrong kit.
Have you chased it up with the supplier?
As a by the way there is no such thing as a HJ61 it is HJ60 or Hj62.The term HJ61 came about to distinguish round headlight from twin rectangular headlight HJ62's but is not an official toyota model.
