1962 Continental Sedan Installation Of Front Main Seal

Hi Bill -

I have a leaky front seal and find the manual a bit lite for information when installing new one. Do you have to take off the timing cover off or is the seal directly behind the steering pump and can change it there with out removing timing cover?

Regards,

Dale

Hi Dale -

To change the front cover seal the front cover does not need to be removed. The seal is simply inserted into the cover in place of the old seal . We like to clean the cover at that point and lightly coat the mating seal to cover area with a non hardening gasket cement for good measure. When the pump is reinstalled the rubber mounts ( located on the pump ) should be new or in very good shape. The original pump bolts must be used as the have a built in gauge to properly seat the rubber mounts to the cover. Good luck.

Sincerely,

Bill
