Default Leaky flywheel oil seal? Step this way.

Over the years I've suffered from leaky flywheel oil seals. The cheap seals are rubbish, they can't take the heat of an aircooled engine. The silicon ones can but are too soft and if they dry out say due to the car sitting over the winter can suffer on startup. The solution is a high quality viton rubber seal. You need a generic seal with the size 70mm ID 90 OD and 10mm thick. A single lip seal will cost you approx 11. Worth every penny. I got one from these guys
