Re: Timing cover oil seal

Finally solved the problem with grateful thanks to my local classic car garage. As you were all too polite to say I am a novice and I made a rookie mistake. A fresh pair of eyes soon put me on the right track. I promised to report back if anything was to be learned so if anybody is interested this i...

Re: Timing cover oil seal

Thank you. I must be doing something wrong. If I cannot work it out I will take the cover to a local classic car garage to fit. If I learn anything helpful I let you all know.
The cover I saw on the clip was similar to the attached photo which is subtly different to my cover.
Regards

Re: Timing cover oil seal

I have been watching a YouTube clip and the Morris Minor timing case cover in the clip seems to have a larger hole for the seal and is a slightly different shape than the one I have. I have attached another photo of mine. Can anybody advise on this. Many thanks once again for the help.

Re: Timing cover oil seal

I have tried every way I can think off but I can find no way that it will push in. I have bought three seals now from different suppliers to make sure but they are all virtually identical. I am at a loss.

Re: Timing cover oil seal

Sorry, I hadn’t worked out how to do photos but hope these are ok. One shows the old seal that I dug out in pieces. The new seal seems too big in diameter, I even tried to press it in with my vice. I am doing something wrong. Thanks you guys.

Timing cover oil seal

Help please. Novice, slowly rebuilding my 1098 engine which I started pulling apart ten years ago due to a small oil leak ( found to be coming from the sump gasket). Since lockdown I have been making good progress but hit a snag with this oil seal. I just cannot work out how to fit the new one. Ther...
