    Jag front wheel bearing seal

    Hello
    I am trying to source new inner seal for the front wheel bearings, I know its Jag running gear but am unsure if its XJ6 or which year.
    The wheel bearing is a Timken L68149/L68110 but im unable to find a number for the seal, can anyone help?
    Or even narrow down what running gear i have from the bearing size?
    Many thanks in advance

    Talk to John Gordon 01254 398476 - he sent me a front wheel bearing kit BRT640ABS for very little cash and I am fairly sure it included the L68110 bearings. mine is a 1988 XJS but many are very similar.

    IIRC there's basically two sizes of bearing & seal for early Jag - small spindle and large spindle; someone posted sizes recently I'm sure.

    Of course the Dax DeDion is XJ40 based which is a different size again..

    What car do you have and when was it built? This should narrow it down as to what is fitted.

    Your bearings are for the late series 2 & 3 XJ post 77 on or early XJS pre abs 77-92.

    I recall I ordered a kit and it came with a one piece oil and weather seal. I was expecting a two parts but the new seal is an improved version.

    Thanks John
    Going by that my is a pre 77 which would make sense as its registered as a 1964, this could have been the donor car.
    Stub axel is around 35mm diameter

    I would find it hard to believe the registration in 1964 is actually your donor vehicle parts as all kits I know when cobra replicas were started in the 80's used early xj 6 then later xj 6 xjs post 1977.

    You v5c might state built from parts and that would be the registration date for the build. People used older documents in the early days. The most important part is that it should state the kit manufacturer and not Jag or Daimler.
    Stub 35mm is the later series post 77.

    I think you will be requiring C45711 for post 77 seal.

    This is a one piece seal and has an aluminium inside the rubber seal. Be careful when drifting in as not to pinch the side drift and ensure its square. I think I used my old bearings.
    When you drift the bearing shells in .You can use your old bearings which you need to reduce in side very slightly on a grinding wheel or belt sanding wheel. Works a treat.
