Re: amc 20 cover gasket

OK I just put in new rear wheel bearings and new inner and outer oil seals so I hope this fixes the problem of water comming in. My vent tube is good and high. I mesured the case last time I had it apart and it didn't seem thick enough to drill and tap. I have a friend with a tig welder and he offered to put a drain hole on the bottom of the cover. I think I might do that. I know it wasn't leaking threw the cover but with a rubber reusable gasket It would save the drying time on the rtv silicone. I didn't relize the bolt on the brake went threw the tube I will stick a little silicon on there as well.. If any one has had this apart they will see a weep hole on the outer axel seal that goes out the back of the brake plate. I guess it is to let any leaking fluid out and off the brakes But it also gives water a straight path to the outer seal should there be a plug in it or some thing. I filled the area outside the seal with grease as well.
