Does anyone have an original pinion seal part number for my 1936 1601? A modern number would even be better. Tony
Tony, remove old seal and measure the O.D..Measure O.D.
of pinion shaft for the size of the seal I.D..Use a modern
lip seal. Pinion shaft will probably be grooved and new seal
will leak, if grooved
, get a SPEEDY-SLEEVE and push it over the rough area over
some Loctite which will give a new ground and smooth surface
for the lip- seal.
Leo: Thanks for the info. I did not want to remove the old seal until I had a new one in hand. John Ciselak gave me the number, and I have it ordered. The tip on the sleeve is particularly good, hopefully I won’t have to get one, as I think there is a modern seal in there now. Tony
