Funco Rack Leaking

Recommended Posts

The Funco rack I have is leaking. Its in the area of where the steering shaft attaches. There is a dust cover that I removed and I can see the fluid leaking from there. There is a snap ring that holds in a bearing of some sort. I imagine there is a seal underneath the bearing??? Im at work so I have no pictures to show you. But has anybody had a simular experience and is it a easy fix? I will post pictures tonight when I get home.

Thanks

Jerry

If your rack is the early type that uses a Mustang Spool valve Grant has a updated replacement top seal. (aluminum with O-rings) An easy replacement in car.

If it is the late type with a Sweet spool valve you might have to send it in for new seals. The Sweet valves rarely leek and if they do it is at the bottom and into the drivers side boot..

You can just snap in another seal but its probable that something else allowed movement to cause the seal to fail :ck:

On my last car, the Sweet valve was leaking where the steering column connected. I found replacement seal was referenced to a Mercedes part number.... like $30. ~sorry but that's all the info I can remember.

It's not leaking, it's the tears dripping from your car cause you don't want it anymore.

Just replace the seal, before you replace the seal take the spring out of the new seal and unwind the spring and cut four coils off, {must be a clean cut} and reinstall.
