Fel Pro part no. BS 40547
#1
I just purchased this part,it is a rear main seal. This part does not fit the application. The original seal was a 2 piece rope seal,and this is a one piece modern shaft seal. There is no way this seal will work without major modification to the block and rear main bearing cap. I am very unhappy that the catalog says it fits and there is no way in hell this will work.

Hi,

We are sorry to hear about the issue you've encountered. Can you let us know the Year, Make, Model, and Engine Size of the application you're working on so that we can better understand the situation?

The seal that I needed is only available in the conversion lower gasket set. I guess I have to buy a $50.00 part that comes with a bunch of things I do not need in order to receive a $10.00 part that I want. Great marketing ploy on fel-pros part
