Ken, as BlasterStumps mentions refer to John Smith's article regarding what's involved in replacing the rear axle on a 8N.

I recently replaced the bearings on '51. Followed John's well document article as reference of required parts & install notes. Great pictures to follow. John done nice work.

For the '50-'52 there are 2 seals (inner 8N4233A - fits into the axle trumpet) & the outer - A8NN4248A, built into the retainer/seal assembly). Plus 2 cork gaskets (8N4284 - fits over axle shaft between bearing & hub) & (8N4225 - sandwiched between the brake shoe plate & the seal retainer assembly).

As John mentions use a little RTV sealant on all mating surfaces to ensure a leak free install.

Hope this helps.
