    I see that this has been a topic before, but with no answer. Maybe now somebody has the low-down:

    Have some FAC's installed on an 850 LeMans that are being refreshed. Like to install new seals, but before emailing the usual suspects, has anyone gotten them from a particular source? The cap 'o'rings are easy, but the 2 per side cup seals are a little unusual. I'll be trying "Fluid Seal" in Vancouver tomorrow for a match-up, but they look a bit special so I doubt a generic match-up.

    Paydirt!

    I stopped in at the seal place and here are the part numbers for the shaft seals:

    Cup seal: 840400312/4180

    Spacer: 8-203/N1444

    The installation takes 2 seals per side and 1 spacer in between. The spacer is needed because the cup seals are slightly shorter than the originals so they take u that clearance.

    The numbers are supposed to be generic so any large fluid seal dealer can match them.
