 They were from Moss motors , spitfire suspension page.
I will keep the felt caution in mind during reassembly.

If you ordered the bearing kit from Moss, as I recently did, the seals that are supplied are TR6 not Spitfire/Lotus bits.  The seals that Moss sells (separately) for the Spitfire are garbage anyway.  The OD of the steel retaining ring is way to big, I ran into the same issue about 10 years ago when I was selling parts.  It looks like Moss didn't want to listen to the issues.   I did pick up a pair of seals from Rimmer Brother when I was in Lincoln last month.  Their seals are better, as they do fit the hub, but they only have about a half thou interference fit.
