    The sealant is properly known as Aviation Sealant. I use Permatex 80019, Aviation Form-A-Gasket Sealant Liquid.

    Chuck, I'll put a link to my photobucket account in my sig. Will that help?

    Cool, Thanks. I thought you might mean Proseal 8801 or the like......

    Rocky, how did the oven cleaner work? Got any pics of those parts? I got my timing cover, water pump cover, etc off--had to Bubba up a homemade puller to get the crank pulley off. This thing is covered in oil/crud--time to start cleaning!

    Took off all the grease and most of the paint. Everything else is already painted. Got to get some more primer before this one gets paint.

    I've got my 225 mostly assembled as well, just have to get new washers and then the oil pan goes on. I have taken a ton of pictures of the entire process.

    Not trying to steal your thunder, just saying... :beer:

    I agree. However not a big issue when it's just water. BTW everyone I just broke the link to the photos by moving them into an album. Will work to fix.

    Links fixed. Added a link to my sig to all the photos. Have to copy and paste. The mobile app won't do that(iPhone) and Kindle Fire sucks and I can't get it copied correctly. Had to type it in. Maybe one of the mods can fix for me.

    Good news on the link and the pistons! Man, I hate to keep asking for more, but part #'s would be awesome if you could provide those at some point.

    A little bit of advice. The front crankshaft seal is rope packing in a seal like housing. Be careful removing it. Its not available as far as I know. Drive it out from the front using the packing to cushion it. Its called the crankshaft shedder in the FSM.

    Rocky, any photos of the rope packing? I vaguely remember it from my first rebuild in '70.

    I wonder if that is the shedder or a supplied new piece. Either way, good find.

    There will be. Probably one of this weekends steps. Still have to paint the front engine cover before I install the seal.

    The front seal is available in both a rope or rubber seal. To use the rubber seal, you must grind away the stake marks holding the old seal housing in place. You then press out the old rope seal housing and then press a new rubber seal in. I use RTV on the outside of the seal before pressing it into the timing cover for a little extra insurance against leaks. I have pictures at home along with the number on the seal itself.

    Rubber seal (Mine came with the timing set gasket kit but its the same.)

    While I had good luck with the one rope seal I installed, I also installed 4 or 5 rubber front crank seals over the years and would most definitely go the rubber seal route.
