    Hey so my tank leaked and got gasoline in the seam of the engine. fixed the tank and then had a leaky carb, same problem. So now that I've fixed those problems, i think that the gasoline may have bled out the grease around the drive shaft components and came out through the clutch side of the engine. Do I need to pull this whole thing apart? Or is there another way I'm missing.

    I'd at least pop the clutch out to see if anything leaked in - it may be that everything is OK & just needs adjusting.

    2 rules with these are:

    don't get lazy

    don't get in a hurry

    My standard operating procedure in these circumstances is to fly into a complete and total panic, then calm the f&*k down and think logically about fixing the problem, and end up making a complete success of the situation.
