You may have the classic leak we all love that is not from around the crank seal but from the o-ring inside the case around the #1 crankshaft bearing.

I thought the crank seal was leaking and replaced it but this did not solve the problem for me.

If that's the case for you, there is a retrofit kit that you can install to dam up the or-ring leak, and this avoids cracking the engine block apart to replace that silly crank journal o-ring.

Good luck,
Fred
