Re: Improved Shimano 8-speed sealing and part numbers
- Just to update this thread for info.
I've sorted this now. I took a gamble and it seem that the uprated seals are the "A-spec" ones in the data sheets for later models in the Nexus range.
So you need part numbers Y-37G 98080 and Y-36R 07000 to update your old 8-spd Nexus hub.
I obtained these from Petra Cycles in the UK (petracycles.co.uk) for about £6 using these component numbers:
37G9808 ------> "SG-8C31 Right Hand Dust Cap A with Seal"
36R0700 ------->"SG-8R22 Nexus Right Hand Dust Cap C"
You'll need both. The most obvious difference is the metal dust cover over the rubber seal is now silvery and a lot larger
