  12. HI i just had an issue with my rear wheel bearings on my 1957 buick,i changed them about 4 years ago and ever since they have leaked a small amount off diff oil out the backing plate area,so i had them changed again this week and the mechanic said that the way the bearing is fitted as shown in the work shop manual the outer rubber oring on the bearing realy dosent seal to the outer axle tube so the oil was getting around there and leaking out. So he has fitted them the other way around so the oring is further in to the tube,this means the main inner oil seal fitted to the bearing is inwards to the diff and the more dust seal on the other side off the bearing is facing the backing plate and brake shoes,lets see whats happens now. the bearing is fitted the other way to the picture. So has any one else had this issue.? Scott
