I yanked a leaky trans for a rebuild on a TF 727 off a wagoneer.
turns out the tail housing rear seal machined surface where the seal
inserts and seal mates up has a minor gouge on the inside diameter
going to the outer area, which causes a very annoying leak (even with
a brand new seal). Obviously someone jacked up a rebuild prior to
I priced out a tail housing at a salvage yard, they want 100 bucks.
Well, isn't there cheaper way to fix this. I.e., RTV/silicone or JB
weld or something similar?
Thanks for any input and directions would be nice like; Spread a 1/4
bead (of whatever) around inside diameter of tail housing 1/2" before
base, then let sit for 60 seconds, then insert seal. etc.
Thanks for any help or input. I don't want to rip it out again. LOL.
