Default 300 amp alternator oil leak repair

Those of us with the Delco Remy oil cooled 300 amp alternator on 60 series DD.

They tend to seep oil behind the pulley after time and throw a mist of oil all over the right side of the engine compartment around and near the hydraulic reserviour.
After finding a seal and gasket package for the job ended up fairly simple.
After removing the belt and pulley, 8 bolts now hold the seal plate,after removal and cleanup the seal is removed by pressing it out the front of the flange and the new seal pressed in.An o ring is on the pulley shaft behind the removable race and a gasket installs behind the seal flange.Reassemble and you are finished.

Yes, as a matter of fact I do. It is included in one of our old Features Of The Month, where it shows you on the left with one of the Blue Bird Techs and Bill Kirchner and an another person that I can't remember, changing out one of those alternators on Bill's 'Bird at a Rally in the valley a few years ago. Oh, we can't forget the PROJECT SUPERVISOR ARLEY ROE sitting there in the lawn chair
