Product Description


Lets face it. Felt seals provide a mediocre seal at best. They generally will weep even with a new seal and are a constant annoyance; especially on a fresh rebuild.

This housing actually comes off of a later B21/B23/B230 engine and utilizes the later, upgraded silicone crank seal. The inner diameter matches up to the B18 and B20 crank and can be easily swapped over from your old felt housing!

Toss that old felt seal in the trash and reap the benefits of a tighter, better seal! 

Potential Product Fitment Issues

Note: Comparing your old housing with this new one you will notice that it has some extra cast ears down on the lower housing section which are used on the later model cars. The B18 and B20 will not utilize these but in no way will affect performance. 

About Aftermarket

Aftermarket parts are a reasonably priced and good alternative to OE products. We often supply aftermarket products in place of OE parts that are no longer available as well. 

Some items will be better than stock or considered an upgrade from the OE design in the aftermarket brand. 

Other items will work as a less expensive alternative to stock. 

We will not sell a product that we do not believe in, so rest assured you are fine with the aftermarket brand in most applications!

If you have any questions, contact our customer service team to advise on the best aftermarket products for your Volvo.
