Timing Belt Crank Seal
Posted 10 October 2017 - 08:19 PM
Got one of Ebay to sort a weeping seal-result- got me a gusher!!!
Bought one today from local factors and its tighter (both say 42 mm) but a lot deeper as well
Waiting for new belt as it shat oil all over the other one

Seals and gaskets I only use Victor Reinz, Elring or Goetze.
Seals have a rotation direction, so if you've only looked at the size this could be a reason for leaking, although it shouldn't be gushing. Also in some cases the oilpump drive sprocket has a worn surface which doesn't help either, when assembling watch that you aim the sealing lip on a fresh part.

Second seal did however have a rotation arrow on it and a far beefier (if that’s the word) scroll to it
