    Rear Main Seal Replacement

    Trying to get caught up on videos. Here is a video of replacing the rear main seal. Included in a comparison of the current Felpro rear main seal versus one from about 10 years ago.

    Here is the link https://youtu.be/IwOBQ6F4Yg4 to the video on my YouTube channel.

    I'm trying not to embed too many of the videos since it causes the thread to load so slow..................

        Wow! A 64 Daytona is one Studebaker model you rarely see in a private collection, let alone as a project (with the intent of getting it out and about)! I commend you for putting this much effort into this Stude, r1lark. May happy times be had!

          Thanks Jake. I enjoy working on them, but even more enjoy driving them. Plan is to take a trip in this one later in the spring to Arizona -- roadtrip!

          Thanks for following this thread.

            Checking Crankshaft End Play, Camshaft End Play, and Camshaft Gear Lash

            Next video - checking the crankshaft end play (axial thrust clearance), camshaft end play, and the camshaft gear lash. Follow along and see an example of how this is done using just a magnetic base and dial indicator.

            Thanks to all of those who have been following along.

                New Studebaker Rescue Video - Setting the Crankshaft End Play

                Next "Studebaker Rescue - 1964 Daytona" video is out -- setting the crankshaft end play. Removing the cam & gear, removing the crankshaft gear, shim removal, and putting it all back together. Included is an important note about the camshaft thrust plate bolts/washers.

                Use this link to access the video on my channel on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Fz8V3k650AI

                And, if you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you will get notifications each time a new video is published. Unlike the "big" guys like Roadkill, I don't make any money off these videos for two reasons. First, I don't have enough subscribers (would need about 1000 times as many to even think about it ). Second, the advertisements are turned off so y'all aren't bothered by them.

                Thanks for watching, and please comment if you see something that is not right, or if you have a better way, or if you don't like them........or even if you do like them.

                  Replacing the Valve Stem Seals on the '64 Daytona

                  Next video is up - replacing the valve stem (or guide) seals on the 'Studebaker Rescue' 1964 Daytona. Note that we did these without removing the rocker stands and rocker shafts. The video shows how.

                  Link to Video #21 on YouTube: https://youtu.be/24tLmAC9mw4

                  Enjoy, and please post comments and/or questions.

                    The valve seals you were using, did they fit snug on the valve guide? Seems these would be nice for more positive seal if they dont just ride up and down with the valve and no special machining of the guide to get others to work..

                      No, they are still umbrella seals that fit around the valve stem. Supposedly they are the next step up as far as material, from the black 'stock' umbrella seals. The best umbrella seal would probably be the blue-colored Viton seals that Phil Harris sells. I'm using those on my '62 GT engine, but it's a rebuild as opposed to this 'reseal'.

                      I know that valve seals can be a controversial subject - umbrella versus positive seal, no machining of the guide versus machining, etc. Kinda like what oil filter is better . I use the umbrella-type seals in a stock engine.

                        Studebaker Rescue - Oil Pan Installation

                        Oil pan installation, part one. Broke it up into two shorter videos.

                        I have never done this with the engine in the car, and honestly I don't think I'd attempt it except in an emergency.

                        Here is a link to the video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/E-QkiHLFvAU

                              Rich, I ordered them from rockauto.com

                              I didn't check to see if they were available locally.

                                Front cover is on, and the engine is painted!

                                And here are some pictures of painting it -- on the only semi-warm day in weeks!
