Re: Oil Leak generator

<HTML>The oil seals on/in the shaft of these generators (Continental O300 engines) can be a tricky item to get correct.  One of the experts in the field on this is Sacramento Sky Ranch, out in California.  I strongly suggest you contact them for the solution.  800/433-3564 email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Re: Oil Leak generator

<HTML>Hi George,
  This is the second mention I have seen you make of John at Skyranch with regard to fixing a leak in a generator.  I emailed him, but he didnt offer any more than the part number of the oring, which I already had.  I cannot find any special referrence on their website either.  What do you suppose their fix advice is?  Thank you, bob seiler  '56 C172 (with a forever leaky generator).</HTML>

Re: Oil Leak generator

<HTML>Hello, Bob!  Pages 94/95 of the Cessna 170 Book issued by the Int'l Cessna 170 Assoc. has an article regarding this subject.  It was the source of my referral, and it was to "Ray" not John, at Sacramento Sky Ranch, who found the correct parts list in the 1961 cross reference book for the Delco generators.  I've sent the article's author the following message, and I'll let you know if/when he responds. 
  I can tell you that the early generators parts listings are not always accurate, especially as many engines later converted from 20 or 25 AMP gens to 35 AMP gens.  There was a conflict with regards to a woodruff key which had a tendency to shred the o-ring seal.  This came about as many 25/35 AMP gens did not have the o-ring provision, and many shops machined a groove into the shaft adaptor to accept such an o-ring.  Unless the Woodruff key was also shortened the appropriate amount, then the key would shred the o-ring seal and cause the leak.
  The TCM field reps should be able to assist you also.  I'll continue to attempt to chase this problem down, and let you know what I find.
Regards, George

Dear Glenn,
  Hello.  I am a Cessna 170 owner, and I also am the founder of the Classic Cessna 170 Club at Yahoo. (http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/theclassiccessna170club/ )
I participate in other aviation forums as well, and there is a frequent question that pops up regarding generator oil leaks.  I've read your short article in the Cessna 170 Book, and I wonder if you could be a bit more specific as regards the actual part numbers/repair that fixed your oil leak.
Thank you.
George Horn</HTML>

Re: Oil Leak generator

Hi George:

I also have an 0-300 with a oil seal leak in a 35 amp 12v Delco generator P/N 1101898RX. Can you help me with the O-ring and oil seal part numbers as well as a source for purchase? Thanks for any help you can give.

Jack

Re: Oil Leak generator

Having dealt with this numerous times, I doubt the oring that was referenced is the problem. Most of the leaks that I have found have been traced to the Generator drive hub, P/N 530406. The oil seal (P/N 352068) inside the drive end of the Generator,over time, will wear a groove in the hub and the oil seal will become useless. The fix is a new hub and the last time I purchased one they were around $300. It also takes a special puller to remove the hub, don't use anything else or damage to the generator WILL occur.
