I was able to fit 2 seals in the housing as a fellow over here suggested it to me quite a while ago before I finished my first resto. The box has oil in it and has had with out any leaks for over 6 years and near on 6000 miles. I'd recommend it as a safe guard. The 2nd seal hardly sticks out past the housing, maybe 1/16 or 1/8 of an inch.
Hope this helps,

Keep up the good work buddy. I'm watching anxiously!
I am very impressed, especially you having to do all this by yourself. What type of gray did you use for your engine?
Thanks so very much for taking those step by step shots of your emergency brake. That is going to come in so handy when I put it back together.

My first go round I applied Permatex 2 to seal it, but after a quarter inch or so it would not budge. I then removed it all and cleaned everything off again on all splines and grooves. I figured the Permatex was putting too much resistance. So then I tried 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive, being as it is really slick. This time it did the same thing. After about a quarter inch or so it would not budge. I even hit it (not too incredibly hard) with a sledge against a block of wood, a rubber mallet and a plastic hammer and it would not budge. So again, I removed it and am cleaning everything up again. I am thinking maybe the tolerances are so close I may have to put grease on it? Stir Stick is a meticulous expert machinist and rebuilder and I am absolutely confident of the tolerances being correct.

My band lining is pretty saturated with transmission fluid, so it is a bit of a mess. Did you get a new band assembly or did you clean up the original? Yours looks great.
