amazon had a skf 5569 seal for 4.08 including tax and free 1 day shipping.Its hard to believe they can make sell it and ship it for that price. Tried to order 2 but they only had 1 in stock.

This one fills under the car and is not much fun to fill.I put a clear plastic hose on a funnel but maybe someone has a better way to fill it I have read about a small pump to fill it.I was looking at the Packard parts x-ref there is a number listed 5569 SKF for the control shaft seal.

This is probably a dumb question. My trans leaks slightly when parked. The leak seems to be at the control shaft on the right side would it be possible to tap the seal in so another seal could be slid over the shaft and tapped in place? My other thought was drop the pan slide the shaft over a few inches remove old seal and reassemble. Has anyone done this in the car? Also how do you know if its a gear start type trans.Also is there away to take the seal number from parts picture and get a modern number? 3.587 or 3.596

After my last post I did notice that all the cars are 50s cars probably a coincidence.I will try adding the stabil and mystery oil.If anyone else has other ideas let me know.Something has changed with gas in the last 3 years.I have owned antique cars for 40 years and have never had this problem.

In the last 3 years or so I have had this problem on several antique cars the most recent is a 52 Packard. I have several antique cars and this has now happened to 3 of them. The float sticks up and will not let fuel in the carb. Sometimes I can tap the fuel bowl with the plastic end of a screw driver and that will let the float drop so carb will get gas and it will run fine all day. Others I have to take the top off the carb and free up needle and clean seat with carb cleaner and Im good for a while. Last summer a car did this and I had fresh gas in the car and had driven it over 100 miles 2 weeks earlier.I have tried putting seafoam in the tank with fresh gas and that does not help. Its pretty frustrating when your all cleaned up ready to go somewhere and got to mess with the carb. The only gas thats available around here has ethanol Anyone else have this problem or have a fix for this?
