    1969 GTX, 11" 4 wheel drums. These are the front hubs, the original seals are different but these are shown as replacement. Timken 8121S

    Which way do these suckers go? #1, steel lip toward knuckle? or #2, steel lip toward bearing?

        I know this is an older thread but I was hoping you guys could help me out with #1 above. How far in do you tap the seal? All the way to the bearing, or just to where it starts to taper in towards the steel lip?

        Just to the shoulder of the seal, not all the way in.
