Default Re: 1955 ford Ranchwagon/ pitman arm shaft seal.

This might be in the 'If it ain't broke don't fix it' category. At least until you know if it needs help.
Did the stock fan and original radiator have a full shroud on it? Was it not cooling well? Has the radiator been flushed and tested? Were the freeze plugs in the block removed and the water jacket thoroughly cleaned?
