Petter A1- Oil leak

Post by Ally's_Engines on Sun Mar 16 2014, 21:08

I have now got my Petter A1 to run and have solved the stuck float problem that I had previously. But now I have found out that there is a major leak coming out from behind the flywheel. What would be the problem?

There is a rubber lip seal there to seal the crank bearing, they harden with age, whip the flywheel off and you can then dig it out. Should be able to obtain one from a bearing supplier.

What he said...

Or it could be over full with oil or the return from that seal could be blocked, whatever it is it's flywheel off time. Get a good drift and clean the shaft well.
