    Default 505 SR 2.0l rear main seal - cant seem to find one

    hi guys, having a hard time locating a rear main seal for a 2 liter SR 505. ebay isn't helping me so i would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. cheers.

    edit* i just found one, apparently it fits the OHV 2 liter XNA2 engine (listed as 1971cc) im hoping Peugeot only sold 1 type of 2.0 engine for the 505.

    Correct.

    If it's a 2 litre 505 SR, they have a slinger.....no seal. And no front seal either.

    If it's engine oil il it may be sump gasket or rocker cover gasket.
    If it's gearbox oil ot may be the bell housing seal.

    Check that the gause filter in the filler pipe isnt blocked causing back pressure in the sump ,and you have the correct dip stick ,not overfilling with oil ,try running it half full see if that makes a difference ,,give the area a good clean so you can see exactly were the leek is .pugs

    Hi colj00,
    As good advice from previous post,crankcase breathing (gauze filter and oilfiller pipe for restrictions),rocker cover gaskets/stud seals,excess blowby from worn piston rings,oil level over full,sump gasket,oilfeed pipe to head mount bolts and copper washers.As beano stated there is no rear main oil seal which runs on rear crank journal area,however there is a rubber seal down either side of the rear main bearing cap which seals against engine block along their length and butts up against the sump gasket at its end.I have seen these 'shrink' back a little .What I used to do was remove sump and rear main bearing cap (crankshaft end float washers sit either side of bearing cap),replace cap side seals,modify oil return grooves in bearing cap (made larger),refit rear main cap (grease or oil on new seals so slide into block without dragging/tearing) snip off new seals(about 2mm above block sump mating surface) after fitted Refit sump,fill with oil etc... I hope this helps more than confuses you,good luck. jim

    If the engine has been rebuilt at some stage and the rear cap side seals were trimmed a little too short they will shrink, as described. This produces a persistent small leak from the bottom of the bell housing. Puts a little puddle on the driveway, but the oil consumption isn't alarming.
