I have a new complete dual clutch / pressure plate assembly, pilot bearing, and throughout bearing to install in my 1963 MF FE 35 X Tractor,3 cylinder Perkins diesel. Engine S# 1968212 Tractor S # SNMY320137

There is a conversation kit available as per pictures, so as to install a LIP SEAL on aft of Crankshaft, instead of rope seal.

Has anyone one here on "YT" actually done the upgrade as per above?

I did receive an e-mail from the supplier advising me this is proven up grade.

I prefer to hear from a hands on mechanic more so that a sales person.

I myself would like to see if anyone has used it, and how it's holding up. It maybe more commonly used in the UK than here in the States.

I sent an e-mail to the supplier of said LIP SEAL upgrade ...and below is the return answer:



Yes we have fitted 6 in total to date in MF35 A3.152 and MF135 AD3 152

We had no problems and the longest has been fitted a year,

we have had no problems with the installation and have had no leakage and would class the modification a success and would recommend

full instructions are included and were easy to follow, most were fitted to engines with many hours on the clock, only 1 was a rebuilt engine but the crank had been ground and we no problems

We believe if this was fitted to a very worn engine with the crank moving about excessively , this may also work due to its flexibility but this theory is untested at the moment

Kind regards

If anyone knows of a supplier of said LIP SEAL upgrade in the USA / CANADA I would purchase then from them. As is I am looking at purchasing out of the UK.

I've sent a reply back to the supplier of said "LIP SEAL upgrade" requesting information from their technical department. I'm surprised that a LIP SEAL upgrade is so foreign to the 1963 MF FE 35 X ...3 cylinder Perkins Diesel Tractor,if indeed the upgrade is a successful component?
I shall see if I receive an answer from the supplier??
At a cost of $85.00 US dollars plus shipping.....I shall require more information on this LIP SEAL upgrade.

I've heard mention of this before but have not heard any results from anyone that has used it. Seems odd that nobody seems to have user information. It would be a welcome upgrade if it works.
