Ummm, lemme go take a look... well, the ones I have haven't got a single number or marking of any kind.  No label left or anything.  I know that there were two types made, one for the threaded axle and one for the non-threaded and the threaded types are longer than the others.  My first Jeep had the non-threaded axles and the hubs were made for that.  The ones I have currently go on the threaded shafts, because there is room for the nuts.  Kind of "it fits because it fits" circular reasoning, but it's what I have.  Sorry to be of NO help in that regard...Unhappy
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

Good job on the gaskets.
I made my own using a manila file folder card stock. No binding on my lockouts but I like yours much better. Thicker.....

I had a specialty gasket company make them for me. I wanted them to stand up to the abuse and do what they were designed to do. They are a part of the original hub system design, but of course didn't survive long.

You need a set that is 2.25 inches flange to flange. Commonly called "tall" series.

Thanks Joe. 

I wanted to make sure it was made durable enough to last and withstand any off-road abuse.

I really hate cheaply manufactured parts.

These gaskets are almost always missing and our hubs were designed to have them in place for a reason.

One tip: after installing the hub assembly with the new gaskets, make sure the top of the cam assembly (at the lever) is completely seated into the hub. Otherwise, they will not have the clearance needed to engage the "star" gear.

I just received my Dualmatic Hub gaskets. They are perfect. They are well cutout and an exact fit to the hubs.

Thanks

I was never a fan of the Dualmatic hubs on my old MB but they were sort of period correct for back in the '70's. Those levers always seemed to get bent and when you had to chisel the ice off of them in the winter to turn the levers sort of sucked. But, I never managed to break one either so I suppose they did their job.
Both of my Jeeps are running Warns now and even if one set has an IH on them, the Jeep hasn't rejected them yet.

I've ran with both and never had issues. I think it's all in the maintenance/upkeep either way. Living in SoCal precludes any ice problems.

They just came in.. They are exact duplicates of the original with one exception, they are coated in clear zinc to preserve them a little longer than the originals. The gauge of the material is spot on and they are crisp at the edges due to being laser cut. The fit is right and they are 100% Made in the USA, guaranteed. I'm exploring the feasibility of recreating the arms and possibly the hub itself with a few improvements. That will be up to trademark, copyright, and other legal stuff still being explored. I am happy where we currently are.
