      Same length. check the grease seal flanges, taper on the shafts. when were they used? How many other variations are there? What were the times frames of use?
      Gotta love fine point!

        I do believe the one on the right is an E28 with the smaller grease seal and i think that is the second generation arm, Dec 27-Jan 28 with a 1/8 seal flange

          Close. The one on the right is the 3rd style, note the 15/16th sector shafts hole. it was used February 28 thru May 28.

                Hard to see detail also but I think the 5th style, July 29 to end.

                  I had to go look at mine to get a clear cut way to tell for sure. The one on the left is the 4th style without a doubt. Rod

                    So anybody else want to play? One vote for 4th, one vote for 5th style. what do you think, and why?

                      It's the 5th style because it has the 13/32 grease seal flange and the elliptical tapered arm.......

                        I am looking at the transition angle on the back side of the flange. The 5th style was a thicker arm and had a steeper angle on the back side of the flange. Pic's later,,,, hopefully. Rod

                          by Ayyy
                          I'm installing rear wheel hub seals right now and I have a question. I searched the Chassis and Powertrain tech areas, but no luck. Maybe I'm too stupid to do an efficient search??

                          How deep do the seals sit?
                          Seams simple enough... most cars have a ridge to seat the seal against, but not in this case. This makes for no hard stop for the seal and I'm concerned that I'll install the...

                          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?

                          How close should I trim a front rope seal? I usually use one piece seals.

                          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 ?...

                          Using The Shorter Pitman Arm
                          by Tom Wesenberg
                          Several weeks ago I mentioned that I'd buy a shorter pitman arm with my next parts order. I want to try it just to get my thoughts about how much easier it might steer, but it also gives the added benefit of putting less pressure on the gas tank bracket while turning the steering wheel.

                          A few weeks ago my short pitman arm came from Bert's, and it's a quality forged piece of craftsmanship...
