Exclusive from Mini Mania! For your 1098cc Morris Minor or Sprite and Midget. If you are tired of dripping oil onto your driveway and clutch, this crankshaft rear seal kit is the real thing. It allows you to replace the scroll seal with a real rubber seal! A special aluminum casting bolts right on to the block with no fabrication required. RIC778 (1098cc), Replacement seals only are available as RIC778/S.

The stock factory engine uses a 'scroll seal' which is not really a seal at all but simply a technique to try to keep the oil from not getting out from a rotating surface. There is no maintenance possible on the stock set up as it actually is a metal to metal system with no replacable parts involved. As it wears the engine simply leaks! This video was done on a 1275cc engine, but the installation is the same.





 
 
Question:
I have a 1965 1098cc MKII MIDGET do I order the 2" rear seal kit?
Answer:
Probably. The early 1098's were designated 10CG and had the 1.75" mains - the later 10CC engines had the 2" mains. The last 10CG engines were fitted in JAN of 1964.

Remove the flywheel, back plate, sump and the half-round cover, secured to the block by 3 bolts, above the main bearing cap (MBC). Carefully clean up the rear block face area adjacent to the MBC (Fig. 1 A); removing all traces of gasket, burrs, etc.; also the outer, horizontal edge of the flywheel mounting flange on the crank. This is where the new oil seal will seat; it will need to be checked for damage and carefully polished smooth with wire wool or fine emery.
