    Isn't there a modification that can be made to use a modern seal to eliminate the felt?

    Install dry or with Gasket sealer on the portion that goes into the cover (outer edges), after installed in the cover and centered as good as possible use wheel bearing Grease on the sealing surface to the hub before installing the hub.

    The best way to center it, is to use a dummy hub, pipe or install the actual hub to center the entire cover before final torque of the cover bolts.

    If you saturate it with oil, it will continue to weep and seep forever, don't ask how I know!

    Replacing timing cover seal

    Guys, I'm putting a '63 Stude OHV-6 back together and need to seat that felt seal back into the cover.

    Is this done best with the seal dry or soaked in oil first? Thanks!
Working...
