I have developed an oil leak from the back of the gearbox on my 83Sud 1.5 Ti G/C. My alfa garage cannot locate a new oil seal from anyone it seems - if anyone can help or knows where I can get one it would be very much appreciated.
I did the gear-change shaft oil seal on my 33, even bought the tool for inserting new seal into place, but not really needed if you're careful. You could try to get the seal number, as opposed to the AR part no., and get it from a supplier Failing that take its dimensions using a vernier gauge and try again with a supplier.
did you get a seal? if you did, have you done the job yet??
I've just taken another look at mine and the oil is dripping out now, so i need to do the job real soon.
I've taken a look at the haynes manual and at the parts under the car, it all looks quite straight forward - - -execept that there is a roll pin that goes thro' the lever arm and gearbox shaft!!
How do you get this out when everything is still in the car??? As far as i can see, it goes diagonally thro' the shaft - but in such a way so that you can't get to it from the top or from underneath???
Can anyone shed any light on this one for me please
Well i did the job today - and what a pain in the neck it was - especially as the car is only on axle stands, so everything was done lying on my back, with limited space to move!!
If you want a detailed explanation of how i did it with everything still on the car, i'll gladly put more details here. I have taken some pics but on their own they won't make much sense (saying that - putting into words what i did will be fun!!)
