The best way to identify replacement grease seals (and bearings and races) is by the original part reference number. The linked photo shows the typical location and appearance of these part numbers.
It can be a bit of work to get the parts clean enough to read the part numbers, but this is the preferred method. The alternative is to take precise measurements (of the seal itself or the spindle) using a digital caliper.

You can then use the seal's part number or its inner and outer dimensions to find a replacement.
Part numbers can be entered directly into our search box, or you can use the link provided to find a replacement based on the seal's inner and outer diameters. Filters on the page will let you narrow the results.

For a castle nut you can use either # 165686 for a 1-inch spindle or # 165931 for a 7/8-inch size.
