Crankshaft pulley Oil leak

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone had experience with any of these oil stop leak products?

I've developed a leak from what appears to be the right side of the motor around the pulley.

In my experience with them, all they ever do is take your money and give you no results.

Seal only costs £5 from Smart and easy to replace. I’ve never seen one leak so perhaps oil comes from elsewhere.

How much time would you estimate it takes to replace that seal?

A good hour provided alternator fixing bolts and nuts are not too much seized.

Do you lower the motor?

Are you using a special puller or a slide hammer?

Wheels must be on the ground or on ramps with 2nd gear engauged so you can undo pulley nut. You can then raise rear end as required for access. Pulley is keyed and slides off easily. May be helped  with a crow bar. Seal comes off the standard way.

Can you change the seal without removing the cover or does it install from inside?

Seal installs from outside. Press in until flush. As I recall there is no reduced diameter in bore to stop seal being pressed in too far so keep that in mind when fitting.
