Default Buying the wrong parts

Hi Hanno,

It is easy enough to do, get the wrong part, I have a box or two of them, but measurements in the case of seals are the only true way to go. Even then, take the sample and, if possible, the part it is intended to fit to the shop. I did that with the rear transmission mount and seal and the bearing dealer confirmed my measurements.

Of course, in these days of mail order only without bricks and mortar shops it is often hard to compare parts.

I downloaded the CR Seals Handbook (SKF) and it is a wealth of information besides listing available sizes of seals and Speedi Sleeves. Recommended download for any restorer of any vehicle.

Cheers,
