1929 Crankshaft Flange

Hi all DeSoto fans,

Information required. 

Need to replace the rear seal on the crankshaft. So far I have removed the flywheel. Now the flange will have to come off to give me access to the seal cover.  My question is: How is the flange secured to the crankshaft?    Any hints will be gratefully  received. 

 

Cheers, and happy motoring......

Good Afternoon Rick,

Thank you for your feedback. You are quite correct, I did some deeper research yesterday and found the flange is part of the crankshaft. I did remove the flywheel to gain access to the seal cover - two parts. Fiddly job, but worth it to eliminate the annoying oil leak.

Cheers,
