I'm putting back together a 63 194 cid stock engine. I purchased the fel pro gasket kit KS 2606 when I put in the rear main seal in I have 1/8" to 3/16" sticking out of both ends on the cap and the block. this can't be right can it? I even thought that it might compress when I install the cap bolts, so I did very gently and not all the way, and that did not seem right either. any help would great.

Thanks Chris

Looks like the wrong seal to me.

Could you have mixed it up with something else?

Or maybe somebody screwed up when they put the kit together.

That might be a trim to fit deal but I'm thinking it's the wrong seal. It looks like a large journal 350 seal. Did the 194 originally come with a rope seal?

No rope seal, for $10 I'm going to just buy a separate rear main seal and compare the two I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the reply
Chris
