    hi, I am new here, I have a 1990 coleman Columbia,my cousin gave it to me and I have been making improvements,last year before I took off for 5 months of camping I bought 2 galvanized 1 1/16 x 1 1/16hubs from trailer, I put on 9,000 mi on trip,so I pulled hubs took out and cleaned bearings , box said 1 1/4 grease seal, wife took box and shop said they don't stock that co parts but gave her seals, first set was too big, second was too tight, I knew theses hubs were cheap Chinese when grease caps didn't fit, the box said 1 1/4 ID grease seal part #46760, anyone have a Columbia model and know where to get seals, my wife went to store 3times hope I didn't damage bearing taking wrong seals off thanks dennis

    Contact the company that you bought the hubs from; they should be able to sell you seals. Do the old seals have any numbers on them?

    Take one of the old seals to a parts shop for cars etc. they should be able to match the seals.

    A good parts counter man can measure the old seals and go the seal catalog to find you the correct seal

    Measure the hub ID and axle OD and get a seal to fit those. Get a double lip seal.

    I meant where you bought it, not the mfr. of the hub. If a reputable place is selling the hub they ought to be able to help you out. If they can't, why buy from them?

    And like others have mentioned, a good parts person could match up a replacement if you give him/her the old one.
