What the hell

I have a block (40 pound steel hopping blocks from showtime), and I keep getting a leak of oil through the motor. I have replaced the steel seal on the inside of then tank, but it keeps leaking.

It has done this since it was new, could it be a badly machined block ?

I assume the pro hopper kit youre talking about will fit the showtime block?

3 blocks like this, holy shit, these arent cheap blocks either. Maybe I should be luck 3 of the 4 work fine.

Just got off the phone with Showtime Tech dept.

Their answer was to wrap the steel seal in 4 wraps of teflon tale and make sure it creases flat on the edges of the seal. Tap it into the gear housing as much as possibile without using alot of force, and then let the tightening of the screws insert it the rest.

Then he said I could use a used steel seal and wrap it 6 times in teflon.

Sounds like some rigged up shit to me.

I have seals that go inside the recess of the block on the motor side and seal the block to the coupling key.
I had this problem in a showtime block as well, but it was due to an improperly installed pumphead shaft seal. Once I corrected that, it was fine, but I added the extra seal just incase because my pumps were mounted at 45° with the motor lower than the tank.

I bought them from an industrial seal supply store, just measure the bore of the block, the diameter of ythe key, and see how much room you have to work with on the height, mine were like 0.3125"H

standard steel seal that comoes with the mae\rzocci rebuild kits right?
no. that seal goes between the head and block. the one you questiond is gonna go between the motor and block.
