I have an oil leak from the rear main seal on my car. I saw an article some time back about rebuilding to a newer type seal but cant find it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get a copy of this article?---think maybe it was Bill Hoagland

I machined rear seal filler blocks for my 14-L to recieve the chevy small block two piece lip seal....Your 22A has a 1/4" larger dia. crankshaft than the 14-L so I am sure they wouldn't fit...Here are a coupla pics of what I did for my 14-L engine, also a pic of Don Shillings method of converting the front timing cover seal to a lip.
This is how the seal lip contacts the crankshaft...The crank has a dish shape and the chevy is flat....sealant is required on O.D. of the filler block as well as on the parting fase of the two halves....
This is the front cover seal, don't recall the number...Basically the old felt and retainer is removed, the new lip seal pressed in with a sealant and tacked in three places...The crank pulley will need turning a few thousands...Also be sure to "NOT" reinstall the tin slinger
