this is a good method to install new seal

Once you pry out the old seal, place the new one in the hub. Use a block of wood over the seal and gently tap it into the hub until it is flush all the way around.

Update.. I got the oil seals from etrailer.com and they also were the incorrect ones. After I installed everything and filled the hub with gear oil it all just leaked out from the back seal. I called etrailer back and they will refund my money but they are not able to tell me what size I need nor do they know what to sell me. I am frustrated. The guy at etrailer said they need to know the size of the axle to figure out what size seal to sale me. Anyone know how I can get this info?

Post #27 in this thread has the Reliable manual. You need a seal with an I.D. of 2.125. You can use National Seal #413470 available where you started at Advance Auto.

I'm sure someone has mentioned before but is the process to install the seal as follows-

install larger bearing into hub
install rear seal into hub
put hub on axle
install smaller bearing in hub
put washer on axle
put castle nut on
put cottle pin in
fill hub with oil
put disk brakes on
put wheel on

My question is that are these steps in order? And do I need to do anything to the seal before or after I install it?

Success. I installed everything with new brake pads and it does not leak. Test drove it around the neighborhood and it was good. Thank you everyone for your help and advice. These seals cost 11 bucks from advance auto parts.
