Good news! Thanks for your picture, I spoke to my contact at Dexter and he told me all the information about your old style 8-248 hub.

A great hub kit that includes the easy lube cap the inner bearing # L68149 and outer bearing # L44649 and grease seal # 58846 that are exactly what you need is the # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K. Your inner and outer races will be included in this kit as well and they are the # L68111 (inner) # L44610 (outer). This hub is also pre greased so it'll save you a bit of a mess and hassle.

Dexter also offers a replacement hub kit for your old style 8-248 hub; the part number for this kit is # 84545UC1-EZ. It includes the same inner # L68149 and outer # L44649 bearings and the 10-19 # RG06-050 grease seal that measures the same dimensions as the # 58846 in the Axle-Tech Kit. Your inner and outer races will be included in this kit as well and they are the # L68149 (inner) # L44610 (outer).

I have linked all the above recommended parts to this page for your convenience.
