Does the front drums on a 46 2 Ton have seals behind the inner bearing? I am going over my brakes and neither side had one.

Biggin69,

See the linked pages below for parts diagrams for your '46 2ton front axle (found using the "GMPartsWiki" search link found in "General Truck Talk" forum).

Inner bearing is protected from dirt/debris by a metal deflector and felt pad setup instead of a formed steel/rubber seal you common in more modern axle bearing setups.

Hopefully this answers your question.

Biggin69 As I recall that tin cupped washer goes on first,then the inner race pushed on keeps the tin washer centered,the seal (felt)actually seals on the O.D. of the inner race. Hope that helps you been a while since I saw one.
