Re: Rear Main Seal

Basically, my friend is trying to help an elder to sell an Model A and they discovered it has been leaking oil.

It appears likely with the severity, I recommended of pulling the oil pan off and starting investigating from there before deciding of pulling the engine out.

Rear Main Seal

I have a friend who working on a Model A Car before getting ready to sell it.

He noticed when the car is running, its loosing oil. What are the reasons why the rear main seal leaks bad when running? Drips a little bit when the engine is turned off.

Suggestions?

Thanks for listening.

Re: Lift Cylinder

The only thing I see what appears to be a "rubber" seal. It looks fine and I don't believe its correct for the time period.

One a happier note. I laid a 12 scale against the shaft. Its perfect shape & straight.

I'm highly convince the old collar is the problem.

Re: Lift Cylinder

Update: I know what the culprit to cause my cylinder to leak. The collar was cracked, welded, and cracked again. Furthermore; the dimensions of the collar that inserts into the cylinder cap has a lot of “slop” by my machinist standards, like .030 because the mounting holes don’t line up which force ...

Re: Lift Cylinder

Thanks. One more question ! So, the Collar will be able to remove and I shouldn't have to remove the end cover plate? Most questions I ask are common sense before trying something for the first time on my own. I just want to cover my bases. The first time I watched this dump bed raise up & down on m...

Re: Lift Cylinder

I'm going to take it apart myself.

I called a Hyd. Repair Shop and they estimated $500 and up, up, up to repair it including charging $85 p/hour. :shock:

Lift Cylinder

The questions is, do you all know a recommended site that may have replacement seals? I got "sticker shock" over the phone estimate from a professional hydraulic shop to reseal ...

Gas Tank Strainer & Gas Gauge

My Gas Gauge is not working properly. I was told that the float might be rubbing against the Gas Tank Strainer.

What's an effective way to remove the Strainer? I noticed it has four notches equally spaced.

Thoughts?

Re: Clutch Pedal to the floor.

Problem Solved. After adjusting the clutch rod to the other rod to the clutch shaft, all is well.

Also removed the clutch cover and inspected the springs, shift fork and greased the fitting. Everything appears to be normal.

Thank you all for your help…until next time.

Stay tune for more updates over the weekend.
