The rear pinion seal took a crap on my 55, so I took the easy way out and ordered the “correct” seal from Rock Auto. Turns out it’s not the right part and other online stores like Advance and Auto Zone also sell the same wrong seal (#7216). The seal had a number of 6845 and the mechanic I had do it couldn’t get that from anyone. I called NAPA and they had nothing listed for a 55 300 at all, but they did end up ordering the seal for a 55 Imperial and low and behold it’s the correct seal #21336. The good news is that the mechanic charged me $100 out the door. My Dad thought that was pricey, but he wasn’t the one that was going to be doing the work… Just sharing in case lightning strikes twice.
Hopefully I will see some of you at Carlisle next week. My Dad and I will be on the show field.
