Hi Guys, does anybody sell the front wheel bearing dust cap?? I have tried looking everywhere to no avail. OR does any other cap fit?
Thanks

Most stores carry or can get Dorman so if there is one here that will fit it should be a fairly inexpensive fix.

As a temp fix for damaged or odd sized hubs I have used a rubber plumbing drain cap and hose clamp.  Those are available in the pvc plumbing section of your favorite home / hardware store.

Although available from Doorman and Help! brand, I find that many times those units fit a little loose.  Luckily, they don't cost a lot, so if the fit is poor, you can use it to keep the dust and moisture out until you can locate one in a junk yard.

Thanx for your help Guys,
M. Bankes, I have a 59! Only thing is that Im down under in Australia! Paying you might be a hassle? unless I can pay PayPal?
How much can I get one for? I would rather buy from you than a store but if its a hassle I fully understand
Thanx, Andy
