Help needed quickly! front crank seal
Posted 07 January 2006 - 02:13 PM
I'm trying to replace the front crank seal. Is it supposed to go in flush with the block? The old one wasn't and two new ones won't either. There apprears to be a metal strip in there about 1/2 the circumference that prevents the seal from going in all the way. Is this supposed to be there?
Also is there anyway to remove the a/c condensor with loosing the freon? I've got the radiator out but still limited room.

I can't really help you with that bearing issue though, not much knowledge on ea82 innards.
Do you still use your A/C? Mine quit, so I ditched the whole thing. Cleaned up the engine bay a bit.

Don't know if the A/c works, maybe just remove it altogether.

Looks like part of an old seal to me. Or a seal that was installed backward, and someone tried to get it out and broke it? I looked very hard, but could not see a case split in the recess. Shouldn't a joint line be above and below crank nose?
the edges are too clean to be broken, the ends of this peice are maching flat. I'll try prying on it tomorrow.

try to tap the bearing back in, gently, as they are brittle when struck on the side. what do you have to loose? a few minutes messing with it and slap the belt on and start 'er up, or R&R the engine?

Plus I got an ATX and I think that thing is marginal to start with? What is the most common failure?
