Hello, I just completed a rebuild of my 1608 engine with:
new gasket / seal set
I am keeping everything stock, rebuild went well except that my cam exhaust seal is leaking behind the front pulley. The seal I obtained from my supplier was mfg. by AKRON, I obtained a new seal mfg. by BECK/ARNLEY and still have the same problem.
No problems are seen on a close visual inspection of seal surface and my oil pressure is within normal range.
I was told that this a well known leak point and may have to live with it, I never had the problem before the rebuild and I am not happy with that answer. Can you provide a seal that may correct my problem? Any information would be appreciated.
