Hi guys, the front seal on my 66 coupe has started to dribble oil again and its starting to drive me mad.
Have had the timing cover replaced and also replaced the balancer and it was dry for 3 - 4 months but now its started to weep again?
Is there any other reason for it to leak other than maybe the seal wasn't quite straight to start with although I would have thought it would have leaked straight away if that was the case?
Really hate the idea of having to get the front cover removed - again to try and reseal it.
Seal was in a Victor Reinz kit? Looked to be pretty decent.
I have cleaned it right up and it certainly looks to be coming from the front seal, I will clean again and double check.
I thought the seal was pressed in from the rear?
You shouldn't have to remove the entire cover if it's just the front seal. You should just be able to remove the balancer.
Where did the seal come from? Was it decent quality?
Are you sure it's coming from the crank seal and not running down from somewhere else?
Early timing covers the seal goes in from the back they have a lip on the front face of the cover Hybrid, the later ones come in from the front. I just uses the ones that come in the Felpro kits no issue, may have some here not sure.
