Default Need help with Continental engine...Please!

We're attempting to restore our departments second motorized fire engine, a 1927 Moreland. It came powered by a Continental 6. I believe the identification of this motor is 11U-2412. The rear main seal holder is broken and we need to find a replacement.

Is there anyone out there that could point me in the right direction?

Thanks

First place to look for obsolete Cont parts is Garrad (Jerry?) Moon at Monte's Eqpmt in Chicago; they specialize in old Cont'ls and are highly spoken of in these forums as helpful and dependable:
garradmoon@montes@flash.net or www.montesequipment.com.
Another so desc in these forums is parossmachinery.com in Dallas.
There are various other obsolete engine parts suppliers I can furnish if you wish to try other places.
Can't verify the b/s as the 11U in my old parts catalogs is lumped in with other U's; shows 31/4x45/8 and 33/8x43/4, but no way to tell which fits the 11U.
1930 McCord shows 11U in pass car/light truck section; shows Moreland B6, BX, R6, and RR (no yrs)(11/2-2Ton) with both Cont 11U and 16C (may not be your model as firetrucks often special models).
Send ALL info on tag when inquiring re' parts. Good luck.

Mr. Firetrucksaver, I too belong to the same club. I have a 1927 Larobee/Buffallo pumper. I am in need of the mid section of a cantinental 6B engine. Did you have any luck finding a replacement engine? If so, I would be interested in purchasing the old engine just for the mid section. Let me know. Thanks, Ken
