rear main seal leaking

Postby rond » Mon Mar 06, 2017 11:16 am

I am new on the forum and am working to fix some issues with a 1952 Farmall Cub I received from my father in law. I am getting ready to split my 1952 Farmall F-Cub to replace the rear main seal which is leaking pretty badly. I have read on line that the seals available today fit loosely in the retainers and that the retainers are notorious for being warped / not flat. I also saw that there is someone on this forum who will rework the retainers to flatten them and also machine the retainer to accept a larger seal which fits. Will someone provide me with the contact for that work so I can make arrangements to get that done? Thank you!

Send a PM to tst (Tim Talleur) and he will fix you up with a modified real seal retainer and seal.
