The seal is out of something else but it allows the toyota hub to seal on the nissan spindle. Someone crossreferenced this a while back and found this was the best fit since the nissan and toyota do not share the same dimensions.

Dang those are good looking hubs!! LOL

Nis....did you look at the '83-85 720 inner seal? Since your yota hubs use the same bearings as the 720, the outer diameter should match just fine and the spindle diameter would match too. I don't have time at this moment, but I could get a part number after I get home tonight. It's a common, easy to get, cheap seal.

You might be right Mike. I noticed the seal on the 720 hub is different from the ones on the D21 hubs I have.

720 Seal





Hardbody seal.

I'm using Belltech dropped spindles (which I assume would also fit a 97). Yes the Federal mogul seal will fit on the Toyota hub.

I asked nis720 about posting these...he said go for it. Here's the pics I took of the machine work. The most challenging part about the work is simply getting it trued up in the lathe. The rest of it is pretty straight forward.

After looking at these pics, I realized that there is a step to the inner bore on the backside, so my suggestion earlier to use the 720 seal will NOT work.

Yes, I can do this work for you if you can't find someone local, but there should be enough pics here so that you can see exactly what was done.....in case you want to try it yourself
