I tackled the trunnion rebuild today. Nothing difficult just time consuming. I filled the rust creation sump with silicone, maybe that will prevent the u bolts from rusting away again.
That is a fine piece of service work. The rear springs look like new.

So who is selling the seals ETC to do the trunnions?
The grease seal is the same as the hub, so any number of suppliers carry that. I found the felt dust seal "kit" by Googling the NSN (see above picture or TM for the number) which brought me to an ebay seller. I am sure the usual suspects like Memphis Equipment would have that as well.

I also used plasti-dip. I have had too many problems with silicone not adhering well and peeling loose. After almost two years the plasti-dip has held up very well to the elements and pressure washer.
