View Full Version : Rope Seal ?'s

07-28-2008, 05:21 PM
When i bought my 89 Prostar with the 351 the guy said that it leaked a little. He said it was something called a rope seal. Which is found underneath the back seat. Well i took the seat out and your suppose to lift the floor up and its suppose to be somewhere around the shaft! For the life of me i can find it. Can anyone help? Thanks...

it is on the drive shaft in a rubber boot....do a thread search on shaft packing....i am going through the same thing....i am going to replace mine this winter....the "rope seal" is the internal packing...it comes in "ropes"
