Bob, So where are you adding the "blue" silicon sealer? From your pictures I thought that you had added it to the section of the retaining block where the seal met the block. Am I missing something? Thanks for the heads up regarding the Tee cork plugs. I was at my local MF dealer to pick up some of the parts today and saw in his schematic that the cork plugs were for the front along with the cheese head bolts. I just want to know what the head of a cheese head bolt looks like. I'll keep on plugging away at this with your help. Ron

Yes...I added the Silicone Sealer to the BORE in the BLOCK, and the BORE of the BRG CAP..Specifically were the CRANKSHAFT SEAL fits in.

So far so good! Removed the main bearing cap, was able to get the seal into the top part of the cap and then put the bottom cap back on. I did not use any sealer or adhesive anywhere. The top part of the seal where the seal is split came together very well and there was no gap. The seal was about 1/8" proud of the outer part of the engine block and bearing cap. I could not get it to go in towards the inside of the block any further. Any comments? I am assuming that the retainer plate holds the seal in this position so that it pushes the seal inwards and seals the crank from engine leaks. Tomorrow I pack the felt strips in the side of the bearing cap. I know that the manual says to use shellac but I went in to talk to my engine machinist and he says that you can pack it dry and oil will soak into it or you can 1st soak it in oil and then pack it into the slots to seal the cap at the sides. He said just make sure that you pack it well. I will soak mine in oil and then pack it into the slots. Then the oil pan, flywheel and new clutch. I have replaced the pilot bearing in the flywheel and will also replace the thrust (throw-out) bearing before puting it all back together. Any tips, comments etc. welcome to prevent further mistakes. Ron
