HD Crank seal for 300tdi & 2.8TGV Made by MWM
Are you fed up with a leaking 300tdi crank seal? We have found a solution to the inferior design of the original 300tdi. This crank seal uses 2 extra fixing bolts at the bottom of the crank (6 o’clock position) to provide extra clamping load against the block forming a far better seal. These seals come from MWM in Brazil hence their cost, but they are known as the best upgrade to the 300tdi.
Please note this will require drilling and tapping of the 2 lower bolt holes to install onto a 300tdi- an easy job for an engineer, if in doubt please seek help from a professional to install!
We realised that although the OEM crank seals were ok, many factory cars fitted with the 300tdi were leaking from the gasket face between the crank seal and block, hence we found this solution from MWM in brazil. (the manufacturer of the 2.8TGV international engine)
This crank seal includes and addition dust seal too, increasing its reliability over the original LUF100430 Crank seal
NOTE: ERR6811 gasket no longer required, use STC50550 sealant instead.
