New grade 8 sprocket bolts and lock washers installed with sprockets and spacers. As you can see with the spacers there’s not a lot or room for carrier wear until they hit.

Filled the differential and installed the hyfax.

Tracks could go back on quick but looks like I have some time. Going to swap out some rk wheel and the extra ice breaker on the passenger side.

Found a NOS wheel in the stash along with a good used. Going to put new bearings and seals in. Interesting setup on then NOS seal and spacer. None of the other ones look like this on the cat.

Installing the seal ‘backwards’ keeps the water out and also prevents you from blowing the seal out when you over grease it. I’m thinking I did some of each to see if it makes a difference. All of my 1981 Tucker wheels had that spacer setup.

So these could be under those flat washers. I haven't pulled a wheel off the carrier yet.

Pulled off the extra ice breaker and the RK wheel. Front will now be back to matching.

The wheels all have spacers and varying seal configuration. Going to replace some bearings seals reversed and the Tucker washers which keep the snow and debris out.

Pulled the bearings and seals from the NOS wheel. Although never used it was never grease and has some rust.

New bearings and seals on the way.
Seal National 471429
Bearing Timken LM67048

Other wheel had
Seal Chicago Rawhide 1612
Bearing SKF LM67048/Q

The national seal has a better lip than the C/R.

The seals do install backwards.

Races are in good shape so did not pull look.

I’ll see if I can figure out.
