Hadnít heard about pre-shaping the seal. But I trust MDís judgement.
Come to think of it now, he may have instructed me to seal up the notch before installing the Ďbox. I honestly canít remember, but I do remember him talking about it at some point.
We looked at the guts before the rebuild and machining. No damage to the shaft yet, but the bearing was showing heavy wear and M said it was good timing to have it done when I did.
Did you just silicone yours with the seal in place?
When are you coming to Welly? Maybe we can all get matching Ned Kelly helmets.
