I do not have a philosophical reason for not using silicone! :smile: My worry is that if any of the rubber oozes into the engine, it might plug oil passages and such. Where as, a not setting sealer is less likely to be a problem.

The oil leaks are sorted now and I have the engine back on and it’s running in the photos. I think I will put it all back together and drive it and torque the head once up to temperature and when I am happy everything is as it should I will paint it on my holidays in a months time.I ended up using permatex on the crank seal and on the sump oil strainer,good stuff that is :grin: :thumbsup:I am very happy with how easy it starts,first turn every time.

Hi,just stripped out the front hubs and bearings are in a mess and need replacing. The timken bearings new are double the price of the sparex bearings and I was wondering if I be ok with the sparex brand quality wise.Any of you know where sparex get their bearings from? or any one used them,thanks.

Have you tried here prices are cheaper than my local supplier. I’d be tempted to go for Timken or SKF or similar well known brand. But then it’s not the most difficult job if you got Sparex and they did need replacing a few years down the line.

Thanks grunt,I have looked about and got them a little better price than simplybearings.As you say use the better known brand,so my head tells me but my pocket tells me different
:grin: I will probably go timken unless some one can convince me different

John V wrote:Moose I split it Saturday and put another seal on and I have it sitting at an angle with a little drip coming out under the seal barley noticeable but it’s their all the same. The thinking I have is that with the engine at an angle the oil can come up through the little drain hole in the bearing cap and out under the seal as the seal is a loose fit and is only sealing at the back and around the crankshaft.


Which way did you tilt the engine? I am investigating my leak now. :?
