Yes, I have ran them both ways on an open primary. Basically because I had no desire to get a new seal and swap em. No leaks.


When I have to either start from scratch or replace a seal, I put the spring in on open primarys.

Again, the spring should face the pressure.

Obviously, the seal seals the surface of that spacer, so if there's any gouges or nicks, oil will get through.

Alot of people overlook that.

This is kind of off but I thought I'd post it.

I use A/N fittings on all my pluming whenever possible. It's just something I prefer to do from back in the v-8 days.

Anyway, I made a set of lines the other night.

I usually use Earls fittings and Russell hose.

I wasn't able to get everything from earls, so I used A few Aeroquip fittings.

What I noticed, was that even though the both brands were #6 A/N, The Aeroquip brand had a smaller ID. On both the hose ends and the a/n to npt adapters. Earls ID was bigger.

The reason I'm posting this is because I'm concerned with the restriction the Aeroquip will cause.

Obviously, the smaller ID will restrict oil flow.

Now, If oil is getting backed up, at any point from the return side of the pump, through the filter to the cooler, back to the tank, would this contribute to exessive pressure in the case? Possibly causing leaks.


How are your lines set up? Could this be an issue for you guys?

Are your fittings restrictive at all?

No. I don't think that's your problem. The spacers aren't designed to be sealers. And The leak is most likely before the missing spacer anyway.

Although I will say that I'm a bit confused as to how your front pulley is in alignment with your clutch basket without any spacers.

My pulleys are lined up without spacers. In fact, I had to have my front pulley machined down on my Primo Brute IV because it was too far out (too far away from engine).
