Tech Tips on Installing PTFE Seals with FAI
PTFE oil seals can be tricky to replace. The method in which the PTFE lip is produced and cut creates a memory behaviour, causing the material to constantly try and return to its original shape. This material creates a tight seal against the shaft and if damaged on installation severely impacts the integrity of the seal. Warning Don't remove the plastic sleeve before fitting, It will disengage as part of the installation.
