I recommend that you talk to Graeme at Bristol Cars Services. Salisbury made axles for a lot of vehicles including Landrovers and the bearings and seals are likely to be identical. But the seals from that era weren't as good as the modern equivalent. I learnt from Martin Barnes at ACCS (which no longer exists) that he had worked with BCS to develop a slightly undersized pinion seal to counteract the fact that the original leather seal slowly ground the pinion shaft slightly undersize. I have to say that the undersized seal worked, and continues to work, a great deal better than the standard Landrover seal that BCS had supplied to me some time prior to that collaborative effort.
