Half Shaft Seal / Shield

Does anyone know a source for the shield that presses onto the outer halfshaft end. It serves as a seal/shield to the rear wheel bearing.

Ford shop manual identifies it as a "seal flange (Part of 4B436)"

It is pressed onto the tulip end that is threaded for the axle nut

Thanks

Paul

Well, 4B436 is the basic part number, it's probably F6SZ-4B436 and then whatever the suffix is, potentially A unless there have been revisions. I noticed a google referance to a YL8Z-4B436-BC which could potentially be a superceded version, using the new ford part numbering system, Y should indicate a 200 model year, whatever an L8 is...it's not listed on any online diagrams...if I had access to stuff at work I could tell you more and if it is related, but more than likely it is for another application. If it is obsolete, there could be a few left at various distributors or dealers...

Okay, okay, I'll come clean, it's actually chicken...but I am going to be adding some turkey bushings later this week, and the ball joints will be lubricated with gravy.

Actually I was making a referance to that recent thread "I want to beef up my front suspension"

Close, but no cigar

Earl,
Your description helped a little but still no prize.

I went to FordParts.com and drilled down using your numbers. That produced the halfshaft as a complete assembly. Kept looking around but never could find the parts.

The illustrations show the inner - differential end but nothing on the outer end.

I tried contacting The DriveShaft Shop and they don't have them. Said they thought they were a standard Ford part.

Tried VintageParts.com but only found the halfshafts. Tried various permutations of the part number but no hits.

Tried RockAuto.com, FordParts.com and TascaParts.com but still can't come up with the part. I know it was used on the 93-97 Birds, Mark VIII's, 99-2004 Mustang Cobras. But can't find a source or part number.

Still Looking

Paul

Wonder if I could make them from left over turkey cartilidge?

Wait are you talking about the rubber boot or about the clamp that holds the boot in place?

This is a scan of the shop manual. Seal flange - item 5



No, I'm not referring the to the boot or its clamp. Ignore the right column that shows the halfshaft boot/clamp. It's just on the same page of the manual

I'll look it up at work on monday if you'd like...have you tried a dealer for it yet? If it's not available from Ford/Motorcraft as a new item, there might be some dealers with some left over, I can look it up in the parts locator for you, if you would like.

Any luck on your connections? My local dealer is saying it isn't in their system. I suspect they just don't want to fool with it

Alright, I did some digging tonight...4B436 brings up bunch of listings, all for the complete halfshaft. There are a bunch of different options available different prefix, different suffix dpending on the following:

-With or Without SC
-With or without ABS
-3.8
-5.0
-4.6

So what is the application here? This way I can narrow it down, and possibly find something for you. There are a bunch of dealers out there that have them, as well, as vintage having some IIRC. Let me know if I can help.
