I own a 53 Jubilee tractor. It was leaking oil out of the weep hole at a quart or two an hour. I went to the local New Holland dealer and obtained a two part rope seal. I pulled the main cap and installed the seal. I also applied Gasket maker aroung the edge of the seals to only find out that after starting the engine it leaks a little out the weep hole but has a pretty steady leak between the block and the tran. Leaking out the sides. Any suggestions

I agree the wedges need changed I did not realize that there was more than the upper and lower rop seal. There is also a secondary seal in the enging block that looks like it needs replaced, as well........... What about a sneaky Pete............

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see The last one I did I used a split rubber lip seal there is an upper and a lower. I don't know about a secondary that you are referring to. Around that same time there was discussion about a kit, maybe called Vickers that was available at NAPA that used a special silicone with a special applicator to take the place of the wedges. The wedges are really a pain even when you have the block upside down on a stand. There is a tool, it may be called a sneaky Pete, for getting the upper rope seal out, without removing the crank, just letting it down a little.
