  1. I have a J90PLSSE can I use a 341280 or 18-8300 seal in place of 329923 & 329922 in the 439446 bearing housing to seal the drive shaft. I watched you videos there were very good.
    Thankyou Mike

    • Thanks for the comment! Instead, use the 329922 and 329923 with the 329923 on the bottom lip facing down and the 329922 with lip facing up.
