The bearing you had pressed on - was it a sealed ball bearing?

The bearing that *was* on the car - was it a tapered roller bearing or a ball-bearing?

The Tapered Roller Bearings are lubricated by the differential fluid and the seal is part of the bearing. Sealed Ball Bearings do not use differential fluid for lubrication and this generally means that a seal is installed in the axle tube to keep the hot differential fluid from seeping out around the Ball Bearing.
