Problem installing new rear main bearing seal

Recommended Posts

I do not fully understand the English instruktions.

What I don't understand is the following:

"Apply a thin coat of anaerobic sealant to the bearing cap chamfer and to the cap mating surface adjacent to the seal but not on the seal end"

What is "bearing cap chamfer" and "cap mating surface adjacent"?

And what type of sealant is "anaerobic sealant"?

Vitsen är alltså att få till en tätning som inte innehåller något frätande dvs det ska vara fritt från syre och därmed inte oxidera. Det är möjligt att man kan hitta den produkt som "Texas Jim" hänvisar till även i Sverige men jag har inte sett den.

The latest sealant from GM is "GM Engine Sealant" This was not around when the 472 was in production but it is superior to the anerobic sealant.
