Hi, my name is***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible. I will return in under 5 minutes
OIL SEALS JUST GO BAD OVER TIME. THERE IS NO REAL CAUSE FOR THIS. OVERFILLING THE CRANKCASE CAN CAUSE IT, BUT IF IT HAS NOT BEEN OVERFILLED MANY TIMES, IT MAY JUST BE DUE TO AGE.
Let me know if you need anything else as I am here for you. Please remember to RATE me as I strive to do my BEST, ***** ***** ratings help me to achieve this. 5 STAR RATING IS MY GOAL AND WHAT I STRIVE FOR
If the seal is not the issue, the next thing I would consider is the crankcase gasket or sump gasket
on the inside there is a spring ring that keeps it tight around the shaft and this is what comes apart or gets damaged
its not a snap ring. it is a thin flimsy ring like spring that is on the inside of the oil seal. it is part of the oil seal
most likely yes, as that is what normally causes the oil seals to fail
normally they have to be tapped into place and are a tight fit
