OK, looks like the SKF seal is 17907 = inside diameter = 45.01mm, = speedi-sleeve part# is 99177 (standard) or 99830 (gold higher quality / longer lasting). The SKF website and the speedi-sleeve catalog both caution that the correct size is determined by measuring the shaft, I can't do that

Even better! Timken catalogs for their seal applications list both the replacement seal from the MB part number and the Redi-sleeve part number. In this case the Timken part number is KWK99177. I'm going to stop by Parks tonight on the way home and buy it if they have it. Their price is about

Have the Timken sleeve in hand, probably going to install this weekend. Oil leak requires a quart every 500 miles now. Back of the car is coated, nasty. I may wash the engine tonight to ensure the leak is REALLY at the crank seal, no reason why it couldn't be something else, but that crank

Already replaced the seal for the chain tensioner, immediately after the head was installed and the first seal leaked because I wasn't careful and let the seal get cock-eyed while tightening. The other possible leakers I can think of are the vacuum pump/gasket and the timing case cracking at

And the seal runs on the crank, not the hub, on those engines. Replacement seals are a few mm deeper so they run on a clean part of the crank. No help is the leaking one is not the original... Peter ___ http://www.okiebenz.com To search list archives

Peter, I've had mine apart and replaced the seal once already, and the seal rides the hub, hub goes over the end of the crank. I think mine is leaking because I used an aftermarket seal and the hub is scored. A few years ago the price for a new hub was about $80, now they are over $200.
