    After reading all the FAQs on oil leak on magneto side I bought 2 new seals and installed them by tapping them with a socket. I did have to put a little grease on the seals to get them in. That is probably my downfall. Anyway, it still leaks on the magneto side. Is there anything else that could cause this leak?

    worn seal chews shaft kills bearing surface, forever leaky...

    the smallest imperfection on the crankshaft, no seal will ever seal on it :(

    is it sealing enough to run and only the smallest of dribbles? then dont worry.

    Thanks, that is good to know. I'll just keep draining it till I upgrade to the 4 stroke Grubee Skyhawk 4G 49cc this spring.
