Cam and Crank Seal Packing Question
I'll be changing my timing belt and seals this weekend. Its not only time, but I have a good oil leak on the front and my AC compressor is out, so I'll be quite busy.
Last night i laid out all of my parts on a bench and gave it a good look over. I noticed that the gates kit I bought included cam seals and the crank seal but there is no packing in the seals. When I look at the back they are hollow and there are no springs or whatever is usually in them. The two cam seals included in the kit are packed in sealed bags with a toyota sticker on them, while the cam seal was just naked in the box. The crank seal is more of a rust color (Viton, I'm guessing) and the cam seals are black.
Should I be going to the dealership or is this the new OEM? I called a local Lexus dealer and they wouldn't give me much information about what they had in stock.
