    I’ve read about some of you replacing the balancer shaft seal. What are the symptoms of a failed seal? <o:p></o:p>
    I assume the part you are replacing is what the parts manual calls the, “shaft seal ring” part #0760 122050?<o:p></o:p>

    Lots of blow-by, lots of oil dripping down the front carb, lots of oil consumption. Changing this seal solves all of those problems.

    Aha. I think I am experiencing this. Need to take a look at this more closely.

    What the Chuck!

    Are there any pictures of this job floating around, and/or sage advice? What has worked best to pull the old seal, for example? Don't see anything in the HOW..

    Thanks! Good pics, I just stumbled across your thread today, by luck. It looks like you can pop the old seal out by careful work with a screwdriver or some snap-ring pliers?

    Also going to check the stator bolts while I'm in there, though still hunting around for the torque spec. Anybody know?
