On a 9 inch Bob the bearing (usually) is a sealed unit and does not receive lube from the housing. The seal goes toward the inside of the bearing and is driven into the axle housing. I used a slide hammer with a hook on it to pop my old seal out and anything that is just smaller than the axle bore to install the new one. Of course they do make seal drivers but most of us old country boys use whatever is at hand.

AAMOF I have to install mine tomorrow.

Just be carefull and don't damage the seal.

John

You very well may be right but remember the axle ends must slide into the third member and mate with the splines. Until you get the axle alligned in the third member it will not slide in.

I suspect though that you are already on the right track.
