Oil Seals, Gaskets, Etc.
Replacement of spring load oil seals, "O" rings, metal
sealing rings, gaskets and snap rings is more economical
when unit is disassembled than premature overhaul to re-
place these parts at a future time. Further loss of lubricant
through a worn seal may result in failure of other mare
expensive parts of the assembly. Sealing members should
be handled carefully, particularly when being instolled.
Cutting, scratching, or curling under of lip of seal seriously
impairs its efficiency. Apply a thin coat of Permatex
No. 2 on the outer diameter of the oil seal to assure
an oil tight fit into the retainer. When assembling new
metal type sealing rings, same should be lubricated
with coat of chassis grease to stabilize rings in their
grooves for ease of assembly of mating members.
Lubricate all "O" rings and seals with Automatic Trans-
mission Fluid before assembly.
