I think Dan Martin tried a ...x7 and it didn't work for him and went back to a ....x6 with success. Looks like the real secret is the ....x7 with the tighter spring. That's what I'll use the next time. Thanks for posting. We had another member here that went through four seals and still had a leak. Was begining to think there was a bad production run.aztechmaster said:OK solved it!.. :dance: After some thought, I simply found a correct sized seal in a local bearing/seal warehouse, 25X40X7. I then removed the garter spring, unscrewed it, then snipped about 1mm from its length. I screwed it back together, slipped it back into the groove in the seal, and carefully installed it. MUCH tighter fit, and NO leaks! Check out the pictures, you can see the smaller garter spring!
