Question

1966 Ford Mustang Rear Main Seal


Hi Guys (Newbie here)

Got a problem with direction (what else is new . . . )

I'm putting together my 289 engine and I'm at the installing the rear main seal that attaches the manifold to the engine block.

The best way I can explain the shape of the seal so I know which way it is to be install is this: It shaped like a funnel, one end to small than the other.

Something like this: <) small on the left side and wider on the right. According the way you're holding the seal. Hope you know what I mean ?

Can any you guys out please tell me which way does that seal in placed inside the head

Thank you guys
GOD BLESS

Are you doing the rear intake gasket? The one that sits on top of the block between the intake manifold and block? I'm a Chevy man and haven't been inside a Ford block in many years, but doesn't it only go on one way?

Hey PK

The seal I'm talking about comes in two pieces. It's between the block and the tranny.
Some newer Ford Mustang main seal come in one hard rubber piece.

My two piece is also hard rubber too.

Do you have any ideas watch way its installed ?

Thanks PK
GOD BLESS

I guess I don't understand what you're talking about. The rear main seal goes around the crankshaft in 289/302's if I recall. It's a round deal with a spring.

I can't recall any gasket that goes between the block and transmission. What is this thing sealing?

Hey PK

You're right its where the crank lies. My seal is in two pieces like I said before. I just found out that the wider part of the seal faces the engine.

Thanks PK
GOD BLESS
