Re: Crank seal blues
That was a lucky find on the seals, Nougat. I was totally unsuccessful finding seals to fit here in Denver and on the net. There's an place here that deals in seals of every size and description, Rocket Seals Inc.They had SAE, metric, etc. and they didn't even list them in their books.
I got mine from PistonBikes. Thin seal behind the mag, thicker one behind the gear.
It's always a good idea to pre-lube the lips of any seal before installing. That way it doesn't run dry until the oil can get to it.
