How about the Scotseal CR40091.  This is a direct fit for the CR40086.  The 40091 is Scotseal plus XL.  This appears to be very similar to the triseal.  I was unable to find a cross match for the triseal to fit the hub.  The instructions also say to prelubricate the seal before installation into the hub and on to the spindle.   The installation instructions say this can be installed by hand.  The instructions also say it should be able to handle very minor deformities in the spindle or hub.  That might be the solution for my problem?

Thoughts?  Anyone used one of these? 

Not that particular seal # but I have been installing nothing but CR +XLs for better than 10 years. Two failures, one was explainable so one unexplained. I will not even install a Stemco unless a customer signs a waiver. Just make sure you "wet" them with gear oil just prior to installation. They swell with the gear oil to conform to many irregularities in both the spindle seal journal and the hub bore.
BTW the steel case CR (non Scotseal) can sit on the shelf along with the Stemco and National seals as far as I am concerned.
Carefully check the seal journal on the spindle or axle stubs for signs of some poor misguided rookie using a chisel to remove a Stemco wear ring. Some light filing may be needed if there is a line from a chisel.

If the CEL/SEL does not come on when the ignition is switched on for at least some amount of time, and the lights are good with the test button, I would say that the ECM is not getting power or it is fried.  There should be two fuses or breakers that supply power to the ECM that need to be checked, as well as three grounds that come off of the power connector to the ECM.  They are supposed to be run directly to the batteries.  Could the grounds have been left off when the batteries were changed?  Check the power at the ECM power connector - it has five pins.   Here is the troubleshooting manual - http://www.dmbruss.com/images/Schematics/DDEC/

 well it was going to good I did not realize that I grabbed the drivers side model when I programmed the mill I have been working on the pass side.
so it looks like I will be making the pass side next week. I wasn't going to do the driver side until I winterized it and could pull it out and make sure it was a mirror image.

Just purchased my first bus a 1968 Silver Eagle. Paid just $4500.00 It starts and runs like a champ, but the interior is now stripped and in the process of wiring it to my liking. The 6.5 KW Onan needs a new carburetor, and there are no holding tanks on board so I have my work cut out for me. Both steers are in great shape but the rears show some sidewall weathering but good tread depth.

Lucky for me, Cowells in Joplin is just a couple hours away. My intention is to install and interior that sleeps 8 with shower, crapper, and kitchen. Then use it to travel up and down Baja carrying 6 surfers/divers and stopping at the good surf and diving spots on 4 week trips. I am willing to read all replies, suggestions, and help that I can get. I look forward to being and avid reader and contributor to this forum.
