Yes. Measure the end float. Also, check the back of the flywheel where the seal sits, it should be perfectly smooth and not rough or marked. Change the O ring whilst you are at it. Also, if it’s not a viton seal, I wouldn’t bother fitting it IMHO. Phone them up and ask them to confirm if its a viton seal. Looking at the price they charge on the web site I'd say its a cheap seal. Waste of time.
