oil flowing out of countershaft seal

3 posts in this topic

I recently bought awr 400 '98 whitch leaked a bit of oil. Therefor I went to the garage where they replaced the oil seal, the collar and the o-ring of the collar. After al this the oil isn't leaking anymore, it is flowing out of the seal :applause:. In the (!not professional!)garage they said maybe the axle was bent.

After that i took it home and did some own research and the axle isn't bent at all. And it seems like the oil is comming from between the collar and the seal. It is not the slack of the chain because it happens too when the sprocket is removed (not when the engine is not running).

Is it possible that the seal is badly placed or what could be another reason and what is the solution.

I would be very thankfull for any suggestion, i'm truly desperate.

no expert but it sounds like they may have goofed up the new seal upon install. Just something to think bout. Good Luck Please post your overall results. :applause:

There is a primary O-ring that keeps most of the oil away from the countershaft seal. You need to split the cases to replace it. Or live with a small leak at the countershaft sprocket even with a new seal. :applause:
