Steering Sector Seals

I am currently updating my steering sector to modern seals. Attached are photos.

Shows the hole the spark and throttle rods exit the steering sector.
Seal is installed inverted to trim the seal length. The seal as supplied is about 1/8″ too long (deep)
Shows the installed seal in the sector. The seal is not a tight fit and I used Loctite to hold it in. There is a flat plate with a gasket t that covers the seal which assures the seal will stay put and the gasket assures it won’t leak around the outside of the seal.
Shows The new seal and the “original” hole in the output shaft of the sector.
Shows the seal with the “new” hole.
Shows the new seal installed in the housing.
Shows the flat plate and gasket that covers the seal in the spark and throttle rod hole.

Seal numbers are Chicago Rawhide # 4943 for the small seal and Chicago Rawhide #11050 for the large. Another hint is to replace the horn wire while you have it apart. My Ahoogah horn works wonderfully now!!

The steering sector shown is from a Model 63 Durant and should apply to most if not all 29 Durants.
