The wire isn't as busy as it once was. There are some active groups on facebook; "Mitsubishi Monteros USA", "Dodge Raider Community", "Mitsubishi Montero FSM Crew", "Mitsubishi Montero USA Parts Exchange" and "Mitsubishi Gen 3 Squad".

There is sealant between the free wheel and the wheel hub. There is an O-ring under the hub cover. <-- These will keep the lubricants in and water/dirt out.

If you need a C clip, post back. I probably have one.
