    I need to replace some Garlock seals, and they are old, like 3 digit part numbers. I have searched the internet, and I can't find them. Does anyone have a source for seals that can research the older part numbers? I've emailed Garlock, no response.

    They are oil seals, Garlock is the brand and they are still in business. Some vendors can look up old part numbers and provide the modern part number.

    Your best bet is take the old seals with you to a local bearing house and let them size them up to current production models Garlock or others make today. If your machine is over 40 years old, there is a very good chance that seal is obsolete anyways. But don't worry, newer seal technology today produces far much better seals than was being made 40 years ago. I've found out from previous seal purchases, they probably will be a little thinner than the originals were, too. Not in all cases, but to be expected in some. Ken

    if you take the id, the od, and the thickness, you can get most any seal.
    if you can provide me with those measurements, & their use-( high speed, low speed, single lip, double lip, etc)
    i can provide you with a common seal part number to order, should you need the extra help:)

    Look for an aircraft parts supply place. There are a lot of Garlocks on jet aircraft in particular. Also a bearing supply should have that cross reference info as well.

    I got them, I just measured the parts and looked up the correct new part numbers.
