Found the inner axle seals on drivetrain america for under $20 shipped, great deal. They are the newer 1-piece style vs. my 2-piece. Will be ordering them today so hopefully next week reassembly of the front axle starts. I will hit another hang up when I need the $250 knuckle seals.

I'm excited to get stuff put back together after tearing down for a month...

I dont remember where I got the knuckle seals for the 59 Dodge Power Wagon from but it did not seem that they were that much money.

The power wagons and large W300 and up trucks used the Dana 70. I did find 1 vendor for ram but they were sold out. If anyone stumbles upon any let me know. $120 each is dumb!

The 59 PW is a W100 but still has the one ton differentials under it. LOL
I`ll see if I can find the receipt and figure out where I got them from.
Got to thinking about this over the weekend and the seal kit for that might be an 8-bolt (unless a newer axle was swapped underneath, maybe i'm wrong). For some reason I can find the 8-bolts for cheap ($50 bucks each), however the 12-bolts are over double the price.

Tiny bit of progress, waiting for the inner axle seals to arrive tomorrow.

I totally didn't realize IH put a drain plug on the underside of the case. Great ingenuity. Of course the threads are bunged from a jack I assume:

------------------------------------------------

Cleaned out the case with Brake-kleen and hit the gasket surface with a sander:

-------------------------------------------------

Started cleaning up the cover, might have a go around with the sand blaster on it:

Moar.....

Wire wheeling on lunch:




------------------------------------------------------------

I bought some Rustoleum satin for the chassis parts that I will be repainting while they are off. Of course forgot it at home today. I still need to pick up some IH red for the drive flanges and spindles. Trying to set off the black wheels.

I could not find the receipt for them seals. Next time I get over to My sons property I`ll count the bolt holes on that knuckle flange. I am sure that they are a 12 bolt.
But then too, that was over ten years ago that I bought those seals, prices may have substantially increased since then.

Could very well be, I know I saw a lot of posts in the early 2000's stating they were cheap (like $25 a side cheap). I know people who drive their IH trucks a lot swap out to GM axles for parts availability. I'm trying to stick with originality for now.

The seals came in. Measured the O.D.'s to double check: Old Seals ~2.995'', New seal approximately 3.005''. Went in like gloves, I put a thin layer of Permatex #2 on the exterior pressed surfaces of each prior to getting them in. Put some old oil on the seal surface for now until I have the new fresh oil in hand. Passenger side first, then drivers allowing additional control in the smaller tube with my 3/4'' drive and 2 & 1/16'' socket ram-rod setup

YUP, that's how its done out here in the west too. LOL
The 59 Power Wagon had been run over some mighty rough terrain and the front steering had taken a severe beating. The only reason I had switched to that ford steer knuckle was that the knuckle on the 59 had a crack where one of the threaded bolt/stud holes was drilled through it.
I may be wrong but, I believe that all the parts for Your IH and the 59 PW are still available, its just the price a person paus to keep them right. LOL

Correct, Torque King seems to be the go to for large knuckle IH stuff. Small knuckle parts can be had much easier.

I did find a PW site with 12 bolt seals but pricing was on a call for availability basis. I now need to purchase these seals as after carrier installation I am at a standstill.
