Question Seal

Hi are there any lternatives to the OEM ( made in Taiwan)balance
shaft seal?
I'd rather use something from SKF!
Or maybe the Chinese OEM is really an OEM.
I wish I had bought a GSA a long time ago
and now I drink Orange Crush as well, thrice up now, two 990 Adv and a 950 SER

I know what you mean. SKF are the bees knees when it comes to bearings etc. I have a suspicion that many of the bearings are not SKF quality but deemed to be good enough. A few $ saved here and there keeps the prices down.

All said and done though the seal only needs changed every year or more and it's fun to get in there for a poke around. I carry one with me nowadays.

My experience is they usually get mistreated

and wrongly mounted.

They're cheap enough to buy two or three and have on hand.
