CRANKSHAFT FRONT OIL SEAL REPLACEMENT
CLUTCH RELEASE CYLINDER | REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
(Refer to illustrations 13.2, 13.3 and 13.4)
- Remove the crankshaft pulley (see Section 12).
- Note how the seal is installed - the new one must be installed to the same depth and facing the same way. Carefully pry the oil seal out of the cover with a seal puller or a large screwdriver (see illustration).
Cut the lip of the seal with a utility knife to make removal easier. Be very careful not to distort the cover or scratch the crankshaft! Wrap electrician's tape around the tip of the screwdriver to avoid damage to the crankshaft.
- Apply clean engine oil or multi-purpose grease to the outer edge of the new seat, then install it in the cover with the lip (spring side) facing IN. Drive the seal into place with a seal driver or a large socket and a hammer (see illustration).
Make sure the seal enters the bore squarely and stop when the front face is at the proper depth.
- Check the surface on the pulley hub that the oil seal rides on. If the surface has been grooved from long-time contact with the seal, a press-on sleeve may be available to renew the sealing surface (see illustration).
This sleeve is pressed into place with a hammer and a block of wood and is commonly available at auto parts stores for various applications.
- Lubricate the pulley hub with clean engine oil and reinstall the crankshaft pulley (see Section 12).
- Install the crankshaft pulley retaining bolt and tighten it to the torque listed in this Chapter's Specifications.
- The remainder of installation is the reverse of removal.
(Refer to illustration 6.3)
- Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
- Raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands.
- Disconnect the hydraulic line at the release cylinder. If available, use a flare-nut wrench on the fitting, which will prevent the fitting from being rounded off (see illustration). Have a small can and rags handy, as some fluid will be spilled as the line is removed.
- Remove the release cylinder mounting bolts.
- Remove the release cylinder.
- Install the release cylinder on the clutch housing. Make sure the pushrod is seated in the release fork pocket.
- Connect the hydraulic line to the release cylinder. Tighten the connection securely.
- Fill the brake master cylinder with the proper brake fluid (see Chapter 1).
- Bleed the system (see Section 7).
- Lower the vehicle and connect the negative battery cable.
