The good Dr covered it. Lot of kits come as a generic 226 kit. They have gaskets for all versions of the 201/226 and like Dr says, not all gaskets are needed for your application.

The large seal(s) are for the G-226 engine from a D-17 and the smaller seal(s) are for the W-201-226 engine used in WC-WD-WD45. You MUST glue them in place after squeezing them thinner in a shop vise and a couple blocks of wood. Use good 3M weather strip adhesive and do NOT cut them off shorter and use same glue on the seal tips and the paper H gaskets !! Wipe some grease on the inner surface when assembling for lube.

The rear main seal is split. Top half goes in an aluminum housing bolted to the block and the bottom half goes in the rear main cap. There is at least one YouTube video on installing them. Follow it exactly, or the new one will leak too.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
