|Cleveland Wheel & Brake is now offering molded grease seals in 62 of the 6.00-6 wheel assemblies in place of the original design which incorporated grease rings and felts. The primary benefit of this product improvement is better sealing properties in the wheel bearing bore to minimize the ingestion of water which could cause bearing corrosion. The 154-12400 Molded Grease Seal is used to replace one each 153-01500 grease ring and one each 154-01300 grease felt. The new molded seal is comparable in price to the two other items combined.|
I am very disappointed about the fact that I just bought a new Tech Pac Wheeler, did not use it or put any tools in it yet, did not remove or separate velcros just unzip it, to find out that a velcro retaining rivet, was out of its holding place. I think that a wider washer should have been use to keep the rivet to its holding place. To my knowledge and by looking of to what type of material those rivet are holding too, tells me that this is a weak concept and it will eventually happen to all 6 rivets. I am also very annoyed about the fact that I have to deal with you instead of just returning the Tech Pac Wheeler and get a new one, I feel like I just bought my self trouble.
CLEVELAND SEAL 154-12400
Add to previous review: lots of thanks to the guys at the will call desk in corona for their patients in helping me get the right parts.
Installs well on 40-90 wheels. This part replaces the felt ring system originally installed on the Cleveland wheels. Make sure you buy a new inner ring. Mine was part 153-00300 for Cleveland 40-90. the seal rides against this ring to make the seal and a beat up one would damage the rubber seal quickly. 4 stars for fit but I don't know about longevity yet.
