front cam seal neon 2.0L SOHC

replacing front camshaft seal on a 99 neon 2.0L

it is completely black neoprene

they are really bad about workin themselves out and causing a catastrophic oil leak on these engines

what could i use to help make sure the new seal doesnt work its way out?

some kind of adhesive

was thinking maybe yellow trim adhesive

not sure.

thanks

Its a non-hardening sealer designed for Aluminum, I use it for sealing crankcases on two strokes and installing all kinds of rubber seals. I find it doesn't glaze over like Yamabond once exposed to air and doesn't kick until you exclude air from the joint so the working time is excellent.

Best non-hardening sealant I have ever used and I think I have tried them all.

hopefully autozone has some. im gonna know here in about 10 minutes when he gets back from there with my list of parts to get.. includin the new seal..

hmm..

i need to get this crazy car back together. hopefully in a couple hours it will be done and out of here yay.

got the timing belt tensionor compressed and lock pinned and everythin else set up and ready now.

the rear timin housin cover is busted and missin a large piece where the cam gear timin mark was, so i ahve to guesstimate where the cam sprocket needs to be, pretyt much 12 o clock, i made a length of spray can nozsle tube cut to length from the fron most edge of the opening of the broken out spot back to the sprocket groove with the tmin mark on it, before i removed the belt and sprocket, when it was set to dead on, at the crank mark

so ill be fine.. since the sprocket is dowl-pinned to the cam nose end,


fun fun

hate chryslers..




thanks again

Let it dry overnight before you start her up.

hmm well., as pretty commonly... i had to improvise and hope,.


they dont have this flange sealer here in this town,, not surprised at all..

i used the yellow trim adhesive and some cursin and hopin, as i was tryin to install the stupid seal, since there is no room to use a sleeve or socket to drive it in, i had to use any utensil possible... and it still fought every mm going into place.. wow..



one side was tighter, the cam seems to be off centered

but i got it regardless..


hmm

all seems well.

all back together done and runnin great.

even got the timin set together the first time marks stayed lined up after two revs around to check it,.


miracle..

all for a lousy 6 dollar seal..

not surprised at all however

such is life,

such is the way jobs go commonly



thanks!

You seem to get all the fun ones, lol! I used to curse those pee-ons. Cam seals, head gaskets, collapsed pistons (shudder) all on warranty. PITA jobs, and can you say pays crappy on flat rate warrenty time? Oh yeah, I for got electrical gremlins, water intrusion into the trunk, the list goes on..... Be glad it was just a cam seal....
