Russ Austin replied to Luther's discussion 63 rear main seal
"Did you compare the new seal to the old seal?  Last time I checked a few years ago, Felpro had the wrong seal. They had the 62 and earlier seal as the same for the 63 and up.  The 62 seal is smaller and leaves a gap between the…"

Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed.  Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue
