I tried the Napa part # 727-2153 for my 88 ranger manual hubs but they were at least an inch to large

Older trucks use a smaller o-ring:

The correct size for the factor hub o rings on the 1980-91 rangers is 3.109" I.D., 3.387"O.D this is the oring standard AS568-235. These can be purchased from Grainger in a pack of 10. Item #: 41UM71

A properly suspensioned Ranger can be safely airborne for up to 4 seconds at a time! =:O
OK, this entire most-excellent thread has covered the O-ring on the backside of the hub... should we start a separate thread for Duh PVH hubs, which also have a smaller O-ring (approx. 2.65" dia) on the front side, which actually gets covered by the PVH hub itself, and maintains vacuum in the main "cylinder" of the PVH mechanism... ???

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
What’s your question? If you want a separate thread, go ahead and start one. Thats the only question I see you asking. So there isn't really anything in your post for people to comment on unless Dirtman’s butt itches.

Regarding the PVH hubs, it seems to me that they are generally regarded as unreliable and most people convert to live axle or some other style hub.

Grrr, I just went with the first post as it came up as a preview in Google search.

'89 Ranger, V6, Dana 28, manual hubs. The NAPA 727-2153 is too large for me, too, as explained above.

Thanks for pointing me to the correct one.
