GL1000 tach drive housing seal.

Postby drfrank01 » Fri Jun 12, 2015 12:06 pm



I have a 79 GL1000 and need either a way to better seal the tach drive / fuel pump housing to the engine.
The seal seemed loose so I coated in both sides with some permatex but upon reassembly it leaks. this is a case of fixing one problem and creating another one. I installed a new tach drive seal and after I removed the housing now it is leaking.

I am going to take it off and try a different sealant on it but I would appreciate it if anyone can tell me where to get another seal.

thanks

Do you mean the insulator(#2 on the above fisc)?

Not sure how that can be loose. It is held tight to the head, along with the pump/tach drive housing, by the two bolts.

For anyone else thinking of replacing the tach drive seal, it is unnecessary to remove the pump drive housing from the head

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
