You might be best to ask this question on a suby forum. Surely there is one and that's where you'd find the experts.

Can you measure the OD of the seal and the shaft size??
If so take the measurements to a bearing and seal retailer and they will be able to supply it for you.
They have books and books of listings for vehicles. I am sure they have sold one for a Brumby before today and possibly even know the size because of experience.

Get in touch with Sun Spares at Yandina in Queensland they wreck and repair and recondition Subarus, have done for years, sure they are still going, had some dealings with them when I had My Wonderful Brumby.
Just google them.
Cheers,

Hi Hohn T1
I sent a reply earlier, but it didnt show up, neither did the 2nd attempt to post.

Lets try again.

Hi John T1
sorry, I dont have the part number, but I used to work on scubies some years back.

I thought I would add that whilst your replacing the selector shaft seal, to modify your gear shift to reduce the floppy stirring for soup syndrome they often suffer.

It may already be modified, but if not, here is how you do it.

You have to remove a drift pin from the outer sleeve that slips over the slector shaft.
This is where the excessive play comes from, the outer sleeve is loose over the selector shaft.
Remove sleeve, fit in vice.
Now on one side along its length use a hacksaw and cut at 3 o clock where the pin is at 12 and 6.
What you need to do is to remove that material, and once the cut is done, squeeze the sleeve in the vice so there is no more gap along the hack saw cut.

Now the sleeve when refitted should be snug on the shaft, and replace the drift pin with a high tensile, (not bunnies carp) bolt and nyloc nut and nip up.
Should be alot better.

If the modification is already done, check for wear around the bolt / drift pin hole, or the bolt itself, crush sleeve in vice if opened up again, and replace bolt nut assy.

Dont mess with the selector shaft, its case hardened etc.

Also, Im now going by a distant memory, there is also a nylon "button" that the gear shift pivots on, these wear as well, easy to replace and this should see you with a more precise gear selection option :)

This was standard fix for the L series etc when I was at a scubi dealership.

Hope this helps.

cheers
