Latest "stunt" from the $300te is a front seal leak on the tandem pump. I see plenty of info on resealing the standard pumps but not the tandem pumps.
The few threads I've found indicate that its a pita.

I would prefer to reseal it as opposed to replacing with salvaged (another old hard seal just waiting to leak).

Has anyone done this, and where did you get the seal kit?

thanks

John

Thanks for the info and the offer guys. But..... I would truly like to just reseal what I have. EPC doesn't offer a seal kit, but they do show them individually. i may run the part #'s on World-Pac when I get to work in the am. Otherwise I will get the dealer to order them for me (hopefully). Those re-builders have to be getting their seals from somewhere. This $300 mercedes is working me, but she's getting there..lol

If you pull the pump, don't be surprised that you'll most likely end up replacing the belt tensioner, tensioner rod among other belt drive components (depending on the age of the belt drive components).

Everything else acc. drive wise is good. Although I do intend to replace the tensioner stabilizer (shock) while I'm in there. Right now it's not an arterial leak, so I may put if off until I swap engines. I'm almost through building the "donor" shortblock up.

IF the tensioner hasn't been touched in a long time, chances are great that the rubber piece inside the tensioner will deteriorate upon loosening the belt.

My reseal kit is supposed to be: part# 000-460-8080 I have to verify that before I order, because parts.com is saying that doesn't match my VIN.

Anyway, reseal kits out there and it's just a small hydraulic pump, nothing exotic or fancy. I'll be doing mine when the weather gets a bit cooler.:D

Parts.com--- I forgot about them. Thanks for the source and the part number!

Can't be much to it, although i understand there are a couple of snap ring type retainers on the main shaft that can be a hassle

thanks Kevin!

Kevin,

Here's what I did..........
EPC lists the kit for my vin, but does not provide a part number for the kit. It does list the seals and snap rings so I jotted down the part numbers for them.
I then went back and searched the kit part number that you provided. EPC recognized the kit number, popped up an exploded view with the same numbers I had copied!

Might try this and see if the kit cross references to your vin.....

thanks

John

That's worth a shot....there were a couple of different pumps used. I've been too lazy so far to go out and dig for the tag on the side.
