There really isn’t a seal there, from the factory, to remove. The only thing on the back side of the unit bearing is a support bearing. It’s held in place by a large snap ring. Neither of those is a ‘true’ seal. All I did is pull the snap ring and remove the support bearing. That bearing is there to keep the factory outer centered in outer assembly, while it turns.
So, no seal was ever run on the backside on the factory unit bearing. The unit bearing itself, is a sealed unit. The new outer slides in place and is held on the outside by a cap, which screws into the center of the outer. If anything it is sealed better now, then before. I did pack the splines and the outside of the ‘outer stub’ with grease, before capping it.
Don’t think it will impact the longevity of the unit bearing using this setup, at all. This is a picture of the what the inside of the unit bearing looks like. You can see the snap ring and bearing that is pulled for using the Ouverson outer.

Edit: You may be referring to the hub vacuum seal. That is not necessary, unless you have automatic hubs. Neither my 99.5 F350 or this 05 F250 axle came with those seals. Both are manual hub axles with no vacuum seal.
Saw it in Hammertown parked with a few other rigs. Thanks for the explanation.

My pleasure. That was our camp/garage for our cars, 4493 & 4893.

Are your knuckles the 250/350 version or the 450/550?

250/350. The donor axle was a 2005 F250 SD60.
