I just ordered a couple of new Timken seals on ebay for 16 bucks each.

Oh I was thinking that seal looked pretty big I though it was a rear, the new seals are cheap but I was gonna say with just grease you could use the old seal and be fine.

Geoff, this is on the front axle, so no worries about the oil.

If you are going to use grease, you are going to need to seal the axle to the housing to keep the oil out. There were a few different ways this was done, back in the day, it could be a seal on the bearing outer nut, or a seal on the head of the axle flange (between the flange and tube). 
 Without a seal, oil will always migrate out to the hubs when the axle is in use.

Aaron, I think it was both, There was definitely grease in the bearings but the hubs were full of a nasty liquid that resembled oil. I was just going to pack the bearings in grease when I put it back together.

Looks like a Chicago Rawhide
Are those bearings grease packed or run in oil.

That's odd, nothing came up with the same search in Google. Thanks Dan and Eddy.

Jeff, The 2015 Timken cross reference guide  says the white B-23377 crosses to a Timken 455022.

I typed "B-23377 seal" in the bing search engine and it's at the top of the list, pictures and all.
