Southfield, Michigan – An innovative one-piece front axle shaft seal that permits faster, easier installation and provides superior sealing characteristics on Ford Super Duty 4×4 trucks has been introduced by Federal-Mogul’s (NASDAQ: FDML) National® Oil Seals brand. The new, patent-pending unitized seal (No. 710825) is available immediately through National Oil Seals distributors and jobbers.
The new National seal – engineered for Ford F250, F350, F450 and F550 4×4 trucks equipped with Spicer 50 or 60 Monobeam front axles – features a sophisticated, one-piece design that helps provide proper axial alignment during installation to ensure trouble-free performance and longer life.
