You can buy that hubcap at NAPA. Easy to replace and refill with gear oil

more broken...

tried to pull the rubber plug out of the middle and the plastic around the plug broke.(see pics). I'd reckon the whole thing was already broken, now it's in more pieces.

any tips on finding this part?
of course I'm going to order an extra,
if one side broke the other might also in the near future

I'm in VANCOUVER, canada if anyone knows a good local source for bluebird parts here

THX!

I just replaced both of mine....I ordered them from NAPA Online. You could potentially be able to get them locally at any truck shop...

Those are common oil seals, any truck parts store or truck service place should have them.
