    New seal carrier assembly too tight for shaft??

    Stumped.
    Have a seal carrier, new, part number 003-117-01 but seems to not fit onto the shaft. Weird.
    My calipers are not deep enough to take measurement as the seal is obstructing full access.

    Should a new seal carrier be tight for the first time installation?
    Should I force it a bit? (yes, is lubed)

    Which model Polaris?

    That doesn't seem like a Polaris part number for the seal.
    Where did you get the seal from?

    Just in from doing it, but...
    I bought it on-line a year ago. Is a real part, looks the same, but! Noticed the end seals are put in wrong if I'm not mistaken. Aren't the tension springs supposed to be on the outside, rather than inside? That's how it looks on the old one, but this one seams backwards.

    Was able to get it on, with a little persuasion, however now moved the bearings out of their nesting places. So it was greased up so well, I was able to pull it all apart, and now cleaning the parts to start over.

    But the problem may presist, as when I try to get the bearing to slip over the shaft, it gets moved instead of spreading.

    Waz wit dat?

    I saw that page. The seals were in backasswords from manufacturing. I'm going to reverse them. It's an SLX, (forgot to mention)

    Each time I try to install the new unit, the bearings get pushed in. Seems like they are very tight inside of the unit, but fit o.k. when out of it.
    Attached are a couple images. One showing the parts, in particular, the seals which were installed with spring lock inwards to the unit. I'm showing the bearing as well which slides out of place much too easily. I cleaned everything very well to start over, but I think it's a dud if that could be???

    Putting the new seals into the old bearing seems like a plan.

    The original sintered bronze bushing inside the old bearing housing may be just fine. Clean it up and have a look-see.

    Was that WSM package the entire kit, seals and bushing?

    Did it come with any instructions?

    Edit: I see the WSM part number for the kit is 003-117-01.
    Catalog page 108 in this PDF file.

    The entry also says OEM number 1341145 s.s 1341115
    I wonder if that refers to a Stainless Steel version


    http://www.matosimport.com/fr/polari...e-polaris.html

    Apparently WSM no longer offers the rebuild kit 03-117-01.
    Instead there is a complete replacement assembly 03-115-01 with steel roller bearings inside.

    No instructions. Was a poor product to work with. Was the unit with bearings and seals already installed.
    So I did change the seals, then when pumping up with grease after installing the drive shaft, I popped out the front seal. I can image the back seal might have as well. Lost 1/2 a day on this. So going to start of new.
    Any recomendations where I can buy another that may not be so much trouble?
