Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Front seal number?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Bob Robb on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 09:17 pm:

Hi,
Perhaps a year or more ago, there was a thread that had a couple of numbers for modern seals that could be affixed to the front cover for front crankshaft leakage sealing.
I wrote them down and then - as I usually do - I lost them.
Anybody got those numbers?
Thanx,
Bob

I glue that seal to the front of the engine. Only the ID is important.I use 30 mm for the ID.

I glue that seal to the front of the engine. Only the ID is important. I use 30 mm for the ID, and I use the rope seal as well.

Bob, I always make it more of a daisy by cutting more petals. Make sure you clean all the oil from the front and use Ultra Black or The Right Stuff to glue it to the engine after you carefully fit it to the casting. Also put it on backwards so it fits tight against the block.

You will not have any more leaks there!

Thanx, Gene.
I'm going hunting for the seal tomorrow, and hope to have it all finished this weekend (rain is predicted!).

I would like to see a picture of the seal installed using those tabs. When I did one,I embedded it in the opening with silicon. Worked,but this might be easier?

Jack, A problem as I see it is when you want to pull the timing cover off you have to be very careful not to damage to upper half of the seal. That's why I have never recommended it inside. I know some guys do though.

I advise to make your seal look like a daisy with many petals for good grip.
