Well not exactly. You can buy that kit but it comes with a recomendation to buy the oil pan seal too.Thanks. This replaces all of the front seals right?
+1. I'd just do the WP drive seal and opti seal. If the crankshaft seal or timing cover is not leaking, just leave em alone. My 94 has 261K on the original crank/timing cover gaskets, and still no leaks. It's just cheaper to buy the whole gasket set and only use what you need, because a dealer would want $11 or so for just the WP drive seal alone...there's really no need to do the timing cover gasket itself unless it's leaking, and in all the b-cars I've looked at, the actual TC gasket leaking is very unlikely.
Note here that "outward" is relative to the seal itself. If you're looking at the front of the seal, the yellow lip should be reaching towards you. If you flip it over and look at it, the rubber lip should be facing towards you.Yep, inner seal should be facing outward and outer seal should be facing outward (both facing AWAY from the center). The key here is not to let the inner seal fold over and in on itself when installing it. If the tool you are using isn't just the right diameter you will either A) catch the inner lip on the shaft causing it to fold over unknowingly as you tap it in or B) you'll stretch the seal too much. Either way it wont seal...
I have to go back in to replace some leaking seal on our 9C1. After replacing the WP and Opti, it developed an oil leak that was worse than before. The WP drive seal looked decent, so I didn't replace it last time. I guess I'll be replacing it this time.
Does anyone have any suggestions for removing the WP drive seal w/o removing the timing cover? Thanks.
