Wedge List / Re: FI TR8 Front Oil Seal
« Last post by Darrell Walker on January 12, 2019, 03:08:52 PM »
Hi Randy,



I donbt think there is any reason to drain the oil.



For what you are doing, I donbt see that TDC is important.  Though if you

drain the oil and need to re-prime, that means removing the distributor, and

TDC helps in getting it back properly.



You might have enough room in front with just the fan assembly and radiator

out.



I changed mine with the front cover removed from the engine, mine was good and

stuck.



I had some wear in the dampener from the old seal, I used a SpeediSleeve to

repair.  While you have the dampener out, inspect the rubber.  It might make

sense to have it rebuilt just as a matter of course.

Randy,



It is time to replace it.B

Not looking forward to the effort, but it is spraying oil now and thatbs

enough.

I have the car up on the lift and have crafted a plan.

Anyone do this in car before?

I did this job years ago on my '81 TR8 w. a/c and it is a pain but not as much

work as you think.B  You only need to remove the damper/pulley assy. to get to

the seal.B  The hardest parts were removing and replacing the belts and

removing the bold that holds the damper/pulley assy.B  It's torqued to, I

think, 275 ft. lbs. so you will likely need an impact wrench.B



If your old seal has worn a groove in the mating surface of the pulley, you

will need a speedy sleeve (or a new pulley) or it will leak with the new

seal.B



See below for other comments.B







Two questions:

Do I need to move the engine to TDC?BB  B The ROM manual says to do this

andnot sure why.

You don't need to do this. You must be looking at the wrong section of the

ROM.B  See 12.65.05 on page 58





What seal is the proper one?BB  Anyone out there know?

The Roadster Factory or Woody can supply you with one.B





My plan:

Drain oil

Remove the oil filter (will most likely require oil prime once complete)

Drain coolant

Remove electric fan assembly

Remove the A/C radiator

Remove the coolant radiator

You don't need to do any of the above.



Remove the Alt, PS and AC belts

Remove the damper and crankshaft pully

This slides right off without using a puller





Pry out failed oil seal

Press in new oil seal

Reverse for assembly.

Good luck!

« Last post by Ted Schumacher on January 05, 2019, 12:26:51 PM »
Hi List.B  We had a new factory body shell stored for many years (since

mid-80's).B  The idea was to become a car for first grandchild.B  As time

went on, we accumulated many parts for the build project.B  However

grandson, his dad and I decided that having 4B  Wedges in house already,

we would sell the shell and bits. Shell has been sold. Below is a list

of what we have available.B  Parts available by the total or individual

items. Pictures available.B  Thanks for your attention. Ted

The black dash and beige cord seats indicate this is a 1979 model which would

explain the 130 mph speedo.B

Yes, the clearance issues when fitting the 'ordinary' SD1 / Land Rover

intake

system isn't the height of the plenum "box" - it's the Wedge fresh air

intake

+ the very high position of the alternator (on some of the LR engine

fronts)

that is THE problem to solve.  BTDT...

Except, why does a 1980 have a 130 MPH speedo.  Something is amiss.







It does look very nice though.
