Guys the groove would have to be pretty bad for a new seal to leak. We just polish the axle where the seal goes and never have a problem with the axle seals or pinion seals. The shim idea, a double lipped seal or a seal of a different width will work. You should be able to get the seal in 8 9 or 10 mm width. Not to say we donít use the sleeves but never on a 105... not yet anyway. Let us know how the sleeves go.

No, 1-1/4" steel pipe, I just rechecked the label. It has an ID of 35.3mm for some reason. So it's 1.39"
Welcome to America, where the measurement units suck, the standards make no sense, and we have an idiot for president.

|goats||11/2 inch pipe. 1.25 is only 32mm|

|Gubi||99134 fit perfectly. 1-1/4" steel pipe is pretty much the exact size needed to drive it on.|

I've Used Double-Lipped Seals In Other Applications With Success (the lips are offset and ride on an ungrooved surface). I Have Not Looked For This Type Of Seal For The Axle But I Bet They Are Out There.

|goats||Ps measure your axle diameter to confirm size!!!|

|goats||99134 speedisleeve IIRC. Amazon. I used ultra grey since I had it handy. Remember to change the bearing before u install the sleeve. So far so good for me.|

Okay, I'm in the same boat on this. Goats, what did you end up doing, and did it work?
Is 34mm the correct sleeve size, and where'd you get one?

|Jim G||locktit 574 instead of ultra grey|

oh yeah, new bearings for sure. Heres the draft plan
Get 34mm speedisleeve and a tube of ultra grey
assemble new bearing onto axle
assemble bearing retainer onto axle -- using 1 1/2 inch ID iron pipe driver
machine up a tight fit collar for speedisleeve and use that to drive it down into position, with ultra gray adhesive
Sound reasonable? Since the gap between axle OD and speedi ID is pretty small, flexible adhesive like ultragray should be fine (theres only radial slip load and its tiny I expect)
