So, I'm in bind. A mechanic has my car and is trying to replace the axle seals (where they meet the transmission and the half shaft), but none of the seals he's tried are fitting - they are all to big to fit into the housing. I switched my car over to a manual, and I have no idea what tranny I put in it; found it sitting on a shelf at a junk yard. It worked fine until the axle seal started leaking. Mechanic has tried an '89 and a '90 seal, and they are both too big (OD is to large).

Does anyone have any knowledge on this particular part, what variants there are and what transmissions they fit with? Part numbers would be a great benefit.

Measure where the seals go in, look at the sticker on the transmission and figure out what it is.
Sticker is long gone unfortunately. I'm trying to get the guy to measure it for me. I only see two sizes on the parts websites for the bell housing oil seal (63mm for 88-89 and 58mm for 90-91). Am I missing something obscure?

If you look at the Honda parts diagrams there are two sizes listed:

90-91 - 91205-PL3-A01 - Oil Seal (35X56X8) (Arai)
88-89 - 91205-PC8-934 - Oil Seal (38X54X8) (Arai)

They are still listed as available from Honda. But a parts store could maybe look up other brands based on the listed sizes. Measure the halfshaft surface to see if it's 35mm or 38mm.

This is the passenger side axle. Doesn't this connect right to the transmission? Isn't the halfshaft only connected to the driver side axle? I thought what I was after was 91206-PX5-005 , which is listed as a different size for 88-89 and 90-91?

Oil Seal (40X58X8) (Nok) - 90-91 (Link)
Oil Seal (40X63X8) (Nok) - 88-89 (Link)

EDIT: Forgot I mentioned the half shaft. He is trying to replace those too. I think the other axle is the more serious leak though.
