    The spring or the open lip always goes towards the pressure or oil etc

    front seal direction?
    by JtownJoe
    Hi, I have the new modern seal and there is an inner ring that appears to be directional, does the beveled side inner seal fin point toward the radiator or toward the crank case?

    One piece (Modern) Crank Front Seal
    I am having constant problems with leaking front seals. Are the currently-available non-asbestos half-seals undersized? Am considering using the "modern" seal. I assume that I do NOT have to remove the oil pan, although of course the timing cover and pulley have to come out. Am I correct? Ed

    Which is better...The Front Crankshaft "teflon coated rubber rope" packing...OR this new Front Crankshaft "one piece nitrile seal"?

    I have always used the rope in the past.

    Modern Front Crankshaft Seal

    1948-51 F1 226 cyl. front main leak.
    Is there anything I can add to the crankcase to make the "rope" seal swell? I went by the book and used a complete engine gasket seal kit and there is oil slinging off of the front of the exposed crank between the damper and the timing case. I only have 400 miles over 3 years on it.

    Rebuilt motor, rope seal leakage
    by 1930 Closed Cab PU
    Got call a from the Model A shop. They informed me progress of my A, rebuilt motor and lots of other things are basically done. So now once weather gets warmer, I will be going there to drive it around for a couple of hours as shake down so they can correct any concerns I may have before taking it home. They informed me that a rope seal had a little seepage, but since it has been so cold they have...

    Front pulley seal, new motor
    by plyfor
    We used the new teflon type rope seals on a new motor with about 100 miles on it. Nice drip which runs down the oil pan front and no leaks elsewhere. It was put in according to all posted info. and greased very slightly. The leak is blackish oil. Is this normal with this type of seal. We ran out of the old style rope and the 2 piece pulley looks ok. Any suggestions ?...
