  • front seal direction?

    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?

      Just a tidbit of food for thought.

      When installing a modern sprung seal, the spring ALWAYS goes toward the liquid you want to keep in!

          Question, is the new modern seal the best way to go ? Pat
          Model A's and of course the famous AA's

            Not for me. I like the rope seals just fine, and have never had one leak.

                My rope leaked the install before the current one which is the modern seal. Rope leaked like a seive, modern seal is dry as a bone. If you install the modern you need to put some rtv around the outer part of the seal.

                  Tom: what rope seals do you use, the white teflon ones? Ours are leaking on a new motor with good pulley. Maybe break- in needed? Are the modern seals neoprene, nitrile, etc? We removed from a motor an older neoprene that was not very effective.

                    Yes, I think the last one I used was pretty white with a black rubber in the center. The older ones I used were more grey colored without any center rubber, and they also worked fine.

                      Hi all, Just a follow up on the problems with the 2 pc. broken crank pulley I was dealing with in late October.
                      I finally got the new (screw together pulley) installed after checking all the main bearing clearances while I had the pan off and reinstalled the new "modern front seal" as per DaWizards instructioins and followed the "leakless oil pan" instructions to the T and I'm delighted to report no leaks at, so far, after about a 100 mile of test runs and a few hard pulls, on some very long steep hills in the area, over a few weeks period.
                      Weather has taken a turn for the worse so I am grounded for a while right now.
                      Thanx so much to all who replied with their valued input. I'll keep the forum updated if anything changes on the front seal results. Many thanks again!!
