Inverted forks have seals the same as normal forks.
the seals might be $20 ea
new oil another $20
and the worse mechanic you can find should only spend an hour on each leg

Is repair time and parts extensive for this type of repair? Kenmore Front Load Model# 110.45986401


Confirm that it is not the door seal. The door seal can easily be replaced and the parts are available.

You would expect that any water leaking around the door seal would migrate down to the lowest part of the tub leaving the appearance that the leak is where the two half's of the tub are joined by the retaining clips
.
Replacing the seal between the two tub half's is a different story as compared to the door seal. The tub seal is definitely do-able, but not for the faint of heart!!

If the leak is very very small I might wait until a major overall is require such as the tub seal/bearing. If I chose to wait I would monitor the situation.

Inspect the area at the hub of the pulley looking for streaks of rust.. If there is an indication that water is leaking past the basket tub seal than doing an over hall now may included front door seal, tub seal, bearing and basket seal replacement.

Oil leak on a '92 Geo Tracker. Installed an O Ring, but still leaking. Any suggestions?


O-ring where? The drain plug? Distributor shaft? Or do you mean oil seal?
Geo oil drain plug specifies a compressible copper ring washer I think? Need to clean the surfaces well, and torque to spec. My own plug's seal is not perfect, but only a drop here and there usually. Autozone or NAPA can supply you a new plug and washer if needed.

Coolent leaking around tube that inserts into the outflow water module(plastic) the other end of tube runs to plastic overflow container. what seals the tube into this plastic part??,,and why is it...


The entire outlet housing very commonly breaks and starts leaking. they even sell them at Oreilly's for around $20. There is a O Ring on the metal tube that seals it to the plastic outlet housing. It works very well to put Silicone sealer all over the end of the tube and push it inside this housing. Just let it sit for a half a day to dry before filling the anti freeze. Sometimes just replacing this O Ring will NOT seal it

How do i change fork seals on a roadster 1983?


First you must get your bike off the ground in a safe manner so that you can work on it without it falling over. Safety first. Then remove the front wheel and the front fender. Take the brake calipers off. Loosen and remove the top nut on one tube. Work on one tube at the time. Loosen the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree. Slide the entire fork tube out of the triple trees. Hold the spring in the tube and turn it upside down and drain the oil from the tube. Take the spring out. Notice one end is tapered, this end goes into the tube first. Turn the entire tube upside down and you'll see a socket head allen bolt in the bottom of the slider where the axle goes. This is a "piloted hex key" bolt. It takes a special piloted hex key to remove it but you can get it out if you use a brand new hex key or one that has been ground off on the end so that the edges of the hex key are not rounded. The size is 6mm on most front ends. Take this bolt out and the top tube pulls out of the lower slider. The seal is in the top of the slider. Take the boot off, the snap ring out and pry the old seal out. Replace the seal and reassemble the tube in reverse of how you disassembled it. Get the tube back in the triple trees and add the correct amount of oil to the tube Use the quantity listed for a "dry" tube because you completely emptied the fork tube. Put the spring back in and replace the top cap. Then, go to the next tube. Do not forget to tighten the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree.

Good Luck

Im leaking transmission fluid from the bell housing


Front seal is probably done for. Get a seal conditioning product from your local auto parts store. It may help .. but don't expect a fix and don't expect a big, long term improvement. The fix is drop the transmission and replace the seal. $1.50 for parts, $299.99 labor, I am guessing.

2007 HD Sportster 1200C - front right fork leaking fluid


The headline of your post seems to have it correct, you have a fork seal leaking. To replace the seal, you must remove the fork slider, the lower part of the fork tube to replace the seal and then refill the fork with the proper amount of the proper oil. Here's how you do it on a conventional front fork. This is not for an "inverted fork" where the top part is larger than the bottom.

Remove the front wheel, the caliper if it's on this side or you decide to do both sides. Loosen the pinch bolt on the back side of the lower triple tree. Remove the large nut on the top side of the upper triple tree. Caution: there is a large spring under the nut. Usually, if the bike is completely off the ground, the sping is almost fully extended but it will still have some pressure on it. Remove the spring and work the fork tube out of the triple trees. Turn the thing upside down and pour the oil out of it. Notice in the very bottom of the lower slider where the axle goes through, there is an 8mm hex head bolt. Using a brand new hex key, remove this bolt. A hex key socket on an air wrench helps to remove this bolt. It takes a "piloted key" but you can get it out with a regular one as long as it new and not rounded. Once the bolt is out, pull the top tube out of the lower tube. You'll see the oil seal in the top of the lower slider. Pull the seal out and replace it with a new one. Reassemble the entire assembly and install back into the triple trees. Add the proper amount of the proper weight oil. This is what is commonly called a "dry" fill since you took everything off and wiped it down. Then insert the spring tapered end first and put the large nut back on the top.

Then do the other side if you wish. Only do one side at the time. The remaining tube that is put together helps hold the tube you're working on extended.

Good Luck

I need instructions to replace fork seals on a 1988 h.d. flst.


First you must remove the windshield, front fender, headlight nachelle, and front wheel. Get everything off the front end. Then, take the top cap off of one fork tube at a time. I do this with it still in the front end just in case it's real tight. Once I get the top cap lossened and remvoved, I break the torque on the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree and remove the entire fork tube. With the tube off, I remove the spring and pour out all the oil. Make sure you look at the sping as you take it out, One end is different from the other and you want it back in the correct way. Now, with the oil and spring out, look at the lower end of the tube where the axle is held into the lower slider. You'll see a socket head bolt. This bolt takes an 8mm hex key. I use an air wrench to take this bolt out. Once you've got the bolt out, the inner fork tube will pull up and out of the lower slider. Pull off the rubber boot and there's snap ring just inside the top end of the slider. Remove this and pry out the old seal noting which direction the seal is facing. They go in with the lip facing down. Install the new seal and reassemble the fork tube. Install this tube on the bike, add the proper quantity of oil, install the spring and top cap, and retighten the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree. Then, do the other side the same way. Reassemble all parts taken off. Note: Reinstalling the top cap on some models can be pretty tough and my require a special frok spring compressor. Good Luck.

Leaking water from front of door


I replaced the seal part # 154576501. The notch is on the right facing the dishwasher. Just pull it out and insert the new one.
I've fought this problem for over a year, thinking it was an adjustment. I am now running it through the third cycle and I am positive it fixed my leak. Also, while you have the cover off, check and trim the tie-wrap around the wire loom. Mine was interfereing with the seal, but the seal was also slightly distorted allowing the splash to come underneath.
