UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.


As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

Camshaft & Crankshaft Seals Question


Recommended Posts

On most of the water pump / timing belt kits that I see for sale, there are 3 Camshaft and 1 crankshaft seals included. I see the 2 camshaft gears with the timing marks on the left and right hand side of the engine, so 2 of the seals would go behind those gears. Where does the 3rd camshaft seal go?


I have a 1994 SE Pathfinder V6 4WD VG30E engine.

IIRC the kit I got had '3' camshaft seals in it. After installing, I realized the third seal went to something else, which of course I can't remember what that was right now! I discovered this the hard way of course as the third seal was in fact slightly different from the two camshaft seals. Had to buy some more seals. Hope you don't.
