There are rules that suppliers have to follow (and many of you do follow the rules). However there have been a number of instances recently where "suppliers" have broken the rules.

Suppliers/Dealers or anyone selling with a commercial view in mind CANNOT post here unless responding to a specific request of a member in a "wanted" post.

Suppliers include people "breaking for spares" on a regular basis, when purchasing spares members should ask a supplier what they contribute to the running of the forum

WANTED: Rear Gearbox Seal Housing / Flange (R72 / VVT)

07 Feb 2019 12:21 #202730 by Venter
Hi, not entirely sure what to call it, but it's the alloy "end cap" of the gearbox in which the rearmost oil seal fits, and into which the prop-shaft sits.

If anyone knows a better name for it I'll change the thread title.

Need one as I gouged the soft alloy trying to get the oil seal out and now have an oil leak. Serves me right for not having a seal-puller!

Sorry don't know what it's called or what damage you have done, but just in case you get no further offers have you considered
Plastic Padding Chemical Metal Adhesive or similar?
I have successfully used it to repair hard to get classic car parts, such as a brass radiator and alloy thermostat housing. It's been fined with the temperature and contact with oil etc, so it hay be possible to use it to fill in the damage. Once set install the seal as normal.
Obviously if you can get the part much better, but if not it may just fix that leak.
