AGB sealol assy replacement on IDG and fuelpump side. 737-6/7/8/900

When you have oil leakage from the drivepad-drain of the IDG or fuelpump, most probably the sealol assy is leaking between the carbonseal and the mating surface of the rotating ring.  When you want to solve the leakage, ALWAYS replace the complete sealol assy, replacing seperate parts is not correct and causes leakage again , not immediately, but after a few days of operating the aircraft.

The sealol assy is a matched assembly. If you mix components, oil leakage could occur again. See the caution in amm 72-60-00-400-802-F00 on page 2.

Even a rotating ring that looks very smooth and that looks not worn or polished can even cause a leak when not replaced.

When installing the rotating ring, make sure the notches are inserted in their respective openings on the drive shaft. 

The picures below show a worn rotating ring and carbon seal.  Note that the pictured seals where NOT a matched set as it should be. The carbon seal was only replaced 3 days before, but the rotating ring was not replaced.

The oil leakage can also be caused by deteriorated O-rings inside the carbon seal assy and rotating ring. This may be caused by the use of 2197 engine oil. This is still under investigation.

Improved O-rings (Viton GLT) are available in a sealol set p/n 305-115-709-0 as stated in CFM56-7B  SB 72-0652.  As a replacement set you can also use the magnetic set, p/n 305-102-301-0 or 305-102-303-0.
