I have an 87 K100LT,I'm having a problem with the installation of the timing chain cover to crankshaft seal behind the ignition rotor. part# 11-14-7654-530, I can't get it to stop leaking. The
timing cover is still installed on the bike. I've gone through a couple of seals already. I can poke a small hole in the circmuferance of the seal, insert an o-ring remover tool and pry the seal out without damaging the cover or the crank journal. I understand the seal is teflon, so it goes on dry, does the outer surface where it mates to the timing cover also have to be dry? That's the way I've tried so far. I use a 2.00" OD piece of PVC pipe to drive the seal in, and I slip a section of a plastic bottle around the crank end to help guide and protect the seal inner surface. I drive the seal in until it's flush with the outer bore.The seal is installed with the numbers and arrow facing forward, the arrow in direction of rotation. The oil level is not overfilled. I've massaged the teflon area to help it stretch over the crankshaft. I've installed the seal on a hot and cold engine, I've let the seal set overnight, within 5-10 minutes of running, oil will seep from the crank lip area. Please Help!
