Questions: We have a 1957 Willys Truck w/ L 6-226. How can you tell if its suppose to be rope or neoprene if you don't know if the seal you are replacing is the original seal ?
Question By: Casey on Jul 3 2020 11:55 PM
You would want to drop your oil pan and check it prior to ordering to be sure.

Questions: I have rebuilt a 1962 226 engine. The rear main seal is not rope. I have oil leak coming from the rear main area. My question is, does any of the bell housing bolts go into the engine that would need sealant? Looks like possible oil following threads (center bolt inside bell housing to block)
Question By: Michael on Feb 23 2019 2:50 PM
No, I dont believe any of the bell housing bolts are sealed at the bolt. But alot of people use sealant at the transmission where it bolts.

Questions: I have a 1958 willys station wagon with a 6-226 engine. got total rebuild, but rear main seal leaks. was rope, a good mechanic replaced rope once and still leaks. I want to try neoprene. I'm at wits end here.

They are not interchangeable. You have to stick with rope if your rope and vise versa. I would check your crankshaft machine surface and filler block for wear.

Questions: Does this replace the rope seal that had been used in the super HurricNE 6?
Question By: Bill on Sep 21 2012 12:00 AM
Your rear main on the 6-226 is not interchangable. If you have rope you have to stick with rope. If you have neoprene you have to stick with neoprene.
