CR 11066 would be the # to ask fore on the seal for the worm shaft, any parts store should be able to cross the # for you

Well Boss, he is 220 miles north, but he is just a stones throw from Cub Brian.

Check the how to section for brake lining. Or you might pm Bob McCarty he has been relining brakes.

Be sure to clean out the vent in the filler plug so it doesn't leak again after you replace the seal.
