Can Performance Tool Installation Set Be Used On Grease Seal With Diameter Of 3.37 Inches


Hello, Will your seal installer tool PTW83020 work for installing a 10-36 seal? Also, can you tell me the socket size required for a 165686 spindle nut? Thank You!


Expert Reply:

The discs that are included with part # PTW83020 include discs that have a diameter of 2.47 inches and 2.555 inches. The inside diameter of the 10-36 Grease Seals, part # RG06-070 is 2.25 inches so the tool with the larger disc will work for installation.

You will want to make sure you have the tool centered properly so you catch the outer ring of the seal when using it to install.

A socket is normally not used on a spindle nut like part # 165686. Typically channel locks are used when installing the nut to avoid over tightening. A socket that would fit this specific nut would be either a 1-7/16 or 1-1/2 inch socket.
