Victor Reinz Camshaft Seal ??

Hi Guys!

I purchased a Victor Reinz Camshaft Seal from Pelican a couple of years back in order to remedy a leak the next time I did a belt change. Well, today was the day.

Preparing for reassembly, I found that the seal's I.D. is larger than the cam sleeve O.D. The Reinz seal has the proper part number (999-113-349-40) and the same 32x47x7 dimensions; however, something's amiss. Have any of you come across this problem?

Below is a photo of the OEM seal snug on the sleeve, and a photo of the Reinz seal (note the gap at the top).

Thanks for your input!
Neil

Early 944 used 928-105-139-02 cam seal race. 30mm OD (30x47x7 oil seal)
Later 944 and all 924S use 928-105-139-05 cam seal race. 32mm OD (32x47x7 oil seal)

Measure your cam seal race to see if you have the correct one.

Just ran into this myself. And what onZedge said.

87 is when they changed over to the 05 part number race and the 32mm seal. However, 86 and 87 uses the same camshaft and housing according to PET so presumably you can use the early 02 part number race with a 30mm seal on a later car since those two things are the only parts on the cam different between 86 and 87 cars.

Roger that!

My sleeve or "race" measures 30mm. Apparently, the incorrect 32mm seal that had been in place was slightly smaller than the new Reinz seal. It fully contacted the race but not as snug as it should - thus the leak.

So, I need to acquire a 999-113-282-40 (30x47x7) seal - tomorrow I hope.
And, not all 924S models have a 32mm race. My car must be an early '87. This bit me last month when I purchase a clutch hydraulic hose.

Thanks for your help onZedge and drkshdw!

Hi you can use either seal/sleeve combo on any 944...just make sure to match them 32+32 or 30+30


ran into this myself afew months ago.




Turned out ihad been running a 30mm seal on a 32mm sleeve for 11 years :-O
