1928 engine rebuild help
« on: June 09, 2017, 05:23:21 PM »
I have the engine from my 28 in a local shop and the shop is wondering about gaskets. I ordered a set from egge and the shop is wondering if there should be a rear main seal as well as a gasket for the rear cover that bolts to the back of the block. If anyone has pictures of a tear down or reassembly or advice I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Joe

Hi Joe & welcome to this forum.

As I stated in an email I am not familiar with the Maxwell Q engine.  I would think that as far as a rear seal is concerned.  If there was one this item may not be packaged in the engine kit and it might need to be ordered separately.  I checked the master parts list and did not find a reference to a rear bearing oil seal however I did find a reference to this part for the model U through PD.  <Group 9D page 122>

I hope someone else will be able to be more help.

When I brought my gasket kit from swansons gaskets. I recieved a kit that had missing gaskets that suited my engjne (28 Q). So after paying in my view top dollar for very little gaskets, I emailed swansons and he gave me the missing gaskets that were listed under a 29u kit.
Now I believe the rear main is just a rope seal. Regarding rear bearing housing (bell housing to block) I was just going to make my own out of. 4mm paper.
