Default Re: Motor wont start..

The crankshaft seals are replaced from the outside.
The one behind the magneto rotor (magnet) is the easiest. Remove the rotor and carefully pry the seal out with small sharp tool. New seals are available here from most of the sponsors. The thin one goes behind the magneto, the thicker one behind the small gear on the right side of the engine.
There are many threads here with detailed instructions on replacing crankshaft seals.
