hello moby,
thanks for the reply... the engine is about 15,000 miles old now, maybe more... 20k.
its a hi-po motor - new crank, used case and flywheel though.
ill try a genuine vw seal next time... and ill fit it flush just incase.
thanks mate

i also never had an original seal ever leaked on me....

what is the history of this engine? you just got it?

1 issue is that the seal could have been removed wrongly...i.e prying with a screwdriver and that could have damaged the seal seating area PERMANENTLY.

the engine (1955 turbo) was built about 3 years ago me and mabbo and he has driven all the miles. No damage to sealing face that I am aware of.

I think it's more a case of which seal (original sounds best) and how far to push it into the case. Mine is pushed in so the chamfer on the seal is past the chamfer on the case. not all they way to the bottom. Its OK.
