Oil Leak 64 Series 62 Rear Mail Seal

I have been about to pull my hair out with my 64 rear main seal leaking. I have had it replaced twice and to no avail it still is dripping. I have had to engine rebuilt twice and I have to believe that all parts were replaced when rebuilt but not totatlly 100% sure. My mechanic says that it could be the thrust bearing could possibly be bad cause he did say there was more than usual movement in the crank that he was use to seeing...could he be possibly right about that?

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
