Steve, if you don't replace the inner cone and seal you are wasting your time and money.
Me with 8v92 engines with a harmonic balancer I replace both the inner and outer just my way of doing it.   
good luck

Steve 5B,

The seal was itself was 18.21, the cone was 63.76, and the o-ring seal that goes inside the cone was 6.65.

Luvrbus's reply came in while I was typing and I would agree 100%

When the seal in my engine was relaced 6 years ago, they did NOT replace the cone and I can see the different wear marks from the different seals.

You can beat the 63 dollar price on the cone they are about 30 dollars for both from PC Industries or Don Fairchild here on the board McBee and Federal both have the aftermarket cone and seal

Niles,

$15.00 paid at the truckwash to acid wash the wheels and $10.00 (if you pay cash and don't want a receipt) per wheel to machine polish and then follow through with hand polish.

Best $75 I have ever spent as far as appearance is concerned. I could not get over how good the wheels looked after the acid wash. It removed 90% of the junk/gunk and I almost skipped the machine polishing.

There are four shops that do wheels at the Wildwood exit. If your interested, make sure you go to JP. His crew does the best work and he makes his own cleaner polish which I have used on the stainless and does a real nice job. The polish is sold across the street at I-75 chrome as well.

Paul

The wheels look brand new

Paul, thanks for the info - when heading west from I75 is JP on the left (south) side of the road or right (north) side? - One more question - Did you only have 3 wheels done? shouldn't it be $150 for 6 wheels? 15+10x6=150

I'll be heading up there this week and definitely need a clean/polish - thanks again

Niles I think it is more like $15.00 for all 6 wheels at the truck wash and  $10.00 each X 6=$60 @ the polish shop! =$75

And wow is JP still doing wheels after all these yrs? (If it is the same JP over on the south west side near the chrome shop used to polish wheels way back when I had trks!)

Sorry for the confusion on the price. The $15 was to wash all the wheels and $60 to polish.

JP is located behind the truckwash on the north side as you head west. The entrance is between the TA truck stop and the KFC.

Bryce, JP was at a truck show in Texas but it was his crew that did my wheels.

Probably the same JP, and yes he was at that location once before when I was trucking. But when they opened up the chrome shop he was working in the lot next door to them for a while. Is the CB shop still there behind the truck wash too or does JP have that for an office/shop?
Just curious. Grin  BK  Grin

JP has his location at the east end of the building. Right next door is another outfit that does wheels and the rest of the building seems empty.

Someone else has the location next to the chrome shop. Interestingly, the folks that run the chrome shop don't suggest using them and send people across the street to JP.

Paul ;You were hit with the charges as listed in the flat rate manual.A blind man can do repairs in the length of time the Flat Rate Manual allows.When I am ordering repairs,I alwas ask if they are charging by the flat rate manuel.If the answer is yes ,then I move on down the list.These so called flat rates are highway robbery in my opinion!
