Today I used my babbitt scraping skills to enlarge the center hole in the front seal for the Dempster #12 , same technique as scraping babbitt .

It should fit snug around the shaft. The oil soaking in it does the lubricating, so no need to worry about it fitting too tight. I usually lube them up good while assembling.
Call Dan Benjamin for parts. P M me for the phone number.
