  • Timing Gear Cover Crank Seal Modification

    I am having to pull the vibration damper off in order to put the A/C pulleys on. The bolts are longer than the standard pulley bolts.

    Since I have removed the pulleys, I now have to replace the rubber gasket that goes between the pulleys and the damper... and since I have to order that item, I figure maybe I should replace the front crank seal.

    I know that there is a way to replace the seal with a modern seal outlined in one of the tech sites linked to the SDC site that I can do myself. But I don't think I want to do that one. I would rather a modification like others are doing... such as Lionel Stone. I figure I have about a week before the rubber damper gasket gets here. Soooo...

    Can anyone suggest someone that can modify the timing cover that is close to Louisiana, or perhaps detail how I can get my machinist to do the modification for me. HELP!!!!!!

    I have had several timing cover neoprene seal modifications done by Ingvar Vik, and have been very happy with them. His email is in Turning Wheels, in the Co-Operator column.

      Thanks, I know about Ingvar. But the same situation exists with Lionel. Its a question of time. Both gentlemen do excellent work. I just decided to do this while the waterpump manifold and the vibration damper are off. I guess I could overnight them, but freight both ways alone would cost a fortune!!

        I posted some pic on the general discussion forum (04-19-07 titled Progress on front cover/hub). I had to make a new hub so I modified the cover while I had it apart. Any compentent machinist should be able to do it for you. I would look for a small job shop in your area. Neal
