Rear axle wheel seal 1999 bluebird tc2000 2510-2700 part number?

Hey guys, just joined the skoolie family this weekend, driving the bus back it blew a wheel seal on the rear passenger side wheel blew out sometime around the last hour of our 10 hour journey. My dad works on heavy duty diesel trucks and can use the shop after hours for us to fix it. Just having trouble locating the right part and can't find much online. Gonna try calling bluebird tomorrow but was wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction.

Rear axle number 1994110
Vin 1baaccsh6xF085430

If not, can I call bluebird directly to find out or should I call a dealer? Closest one that works on um seems to be in MA.

It will probly be easiest to find your axle manufacture and model. Then it's easy for a truck part supplier to look it up. The should be a tag with this info on a bolt on the differential.

If the dealer is no longer able to get a new seal, you might have to take it apart and physically examine the faulty seal.
A micrometer measurement of the OD and ID of the seal will get you pointed in the right direction, provided no other markings are found on the seal.
NAPA auto parts or any power transmission supply dealer can provide a new seal.

A bluebird dealer was able to find the right number for me and cross referenced with a Chicago raw hide part. Also got a fresh gasket. I dont think the hub has been taken off in its 200k miles as I've been beating on it with a sledge hammer and it still wont budge. Started dripping a little but I've run out of time to get it off.

Bro you donít have to go all HAAM on the hub. Being a mechanic isnít all about beating the **** out of things with a BFH haha. Step back, examine your work area. You might find you missed something. Post some pics so we can see it all!

First you pull the axle shaft, then you undo the big nuts inside that holds the hub and bearings in place, then the outer bearing will come out and the hub will come off with the inner bearing and seal retained

BFH, I got. But what is HAAM?
Is that in any way related to bacon?
