Harmonic balancer repair sleeve installation

Got into my timing chain replacement and discovered why my front TC cover seal was leaking;




Look at that groove worn right into the snout of the balancer, no wonder the seal was leaking slightly. This ought to fix it nicely;




You can catch the rest of the install here;

Seal

Hi Sixlitre,

thanks a lot for your detailed description of how to improve the original balancer. I never heard about this repair sleeve before.

Before I start disassembling my Sweety I'd like to know how to put the crank seal into the TC Cover. Did you use Loctite or a non-hardening sealant? Or did you put it in as it was?

Sorry for my ignorance!

Thanks again

Not to step on any toes, but I've always just pressed the timing cover seal into the cover without any additional sealants.

I can't remember if I slapped on any sealant around the seal or not ?

I may have, as I do remember there was some around the old one, but I never used to use it on any of the previous Mopar units I've done, like Bigric said.

As for how I did it, I put a huge rubber mallet over the seal and pounded it with a ballpeen hammer and it worked fine seating it in.

Good luck
