RE: [Chrysler300] Rear Pinion Seal





The 1955-’58 Chrysler cars parts manual (And, all other letter-car parts and service manuals) may be viewed, downloaded and printed at John Holst’s site:  http://www.jholst.net           Click on Chrysler 300 Resources            And, the pinion seals listing may be found on page 3-12 at:  http://www.jholst.net/55-58-parts-manual/rear-axle.pdf

 

BTW, John Holst is home recuperating after successful repair of a broken hip joint.

So you would have saved yourself a ton of aggravation, time and wasted money by just looking up the part number.

Absolutely!  My problem is that my cars are over at my building across town and so are my manuals.  Therefore I took the lazy man’s way and jumped on my computer.  The problem is that those guys allow to select a 1955 Chrysler whatever and they tell you that this is the part for your car.  I can’t even return the bad seal to Rock because it’s been over 35 days since I ordered it.  I’d call and yell, but that would require me to pick up the phone and talk to someone and who wants to do that?!

Something that has helped me in the past is being able to provide the original Chrysler part number. Advance Auto, NAPA, etc has been able to plug in that number and cross reference it to currently available parts.

Hello Everyone,

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.
