So I had the deuce out and it started leaking coolant from the bottom of the oil cooler. Right now its just dripping, but leaking enough to cause concern. I've been looking at all of the surplus parts website, I cannot find the packing 0-rings. From my searches, TNJ Murray sells the two different gaskets for the cooler, but nobody shows the 0-rings. I'm not even sure I should replace those, but I figure while I'm in there I'll take care of it. Has anyone purchased the packing (o-rings)?? Part number from the TM's are as follows:

2930-860-9141 1 GASKET 10889862 (19207) BCD 24 29

2930-860-9140 1 GASKET 10889857 (19207) BCD 24 30


5330-829-2607 2 PACKING, PREFORMED MS9068-212 (96906)

As I greased the truck, it also looks like a wheel seal let loose. Left side inner wheel is covered in gear oil. I'm a bit upset about that, just replaced all of the wheel seals and repacked bearings last year. My guess is the rtv silicone didn't hold up compared to using the cork... so I might go that route. I might try to cut a piece of cork gasket from a couple small block chevy valve cover gaskets AND rtv them also...



Had to rant and get that off my chest....:roll:
