De Dion Inner Bearing Collars. NEW!


I'm gauging interest in new Inner Bearing Collars for the De Dion tube halfshaft set-up.

I'm having some machined up for my customer's Phase 1 car and hope to be able to supply them as a pair with new double-lipped seals.

If you're not sure which part that is, take a look at the pic of the shot blasted collar and in particular the worn groove created by the old leather seal after 60 years, which is now porous and useless at keeping grease in, dirt out.

If you've ever wondered what a searing collar is, it's when you don't take your shirt off as it's being ironed.

All the best,

Stirling Stuff Mr S!

These are a good thing to replace when rebuilding your De Dion as they are invariably worn by the seal but, in my case (and I suspect in others) if stood for a long period the seal sticks to the this collar and then when

new found energy is put through the system (IE you push the wreck from storage point A to point B in you're ever decreasing attempts to restore your pipe dreams) the collar stays stuck to the seal and rotates around the shaft.

Then when you finally do drive the car they stay that way and you have a steel shaft rotating within the steel collar which then creates a gap for the grease to leak through.

So if you are serious about rebuilding your De Dion I'd jump in for a set.....


Gary, put me down for a pairwink
