I will email some work contacts tomorrow regarding this. According to everything I've seen on this forum, and others, and google in general, the only real replacements are chinese "OEM" seals. I've found some 15x27x5 and 15x27x7 and 15x27x8 which in theory might work but not entirely sure.
I found timken double lip tc oil seals, but they are in even #'s like 15x27x7 or 14x27x7 which should work. I bet crankshaft measures out 15 or 16mm

I haven't checked the crank yet for size but I will here shortly need to find my calipers

Looking at seals on Amazon, the sellers seem to use the same image regardless of the seals they actually sell. The pair I got were good, and didn't have all the extra rubber flash as shown in the picture. The 14.8mm inner dimension is so close to 15mm (a more common size). I've been tempted to try a TC15x27x5 on the mag side, and a TC15x27x7 on the gear side. The seal bore on the mag side is about 4.5mm deep, so a 5mm seal might fit. I found them at AVXseals.com.

I bit the bullet and ordered a set of amazon seals. We'll see when they arrive.

I also found those on AVXseals.com. I also found them on CanadianBearings.com

I might order a pair and see how they compare, I haven't decided yet.

Also ordered (4) 6202 2SH C3 SKF bearings. I'm going to make a new thread eventually showing what I've done to this engine once all the parts arrive. Also have 1/8" Stainless bearings showing up for a clutch rebuild, along with new pads. The stock clutches on these are absolute garbage. I'd rather pay $15 for 500 bearings and rebuild a few than pay 40$ for a better clutch. We shall see.

Thanks for all the info guys it'll all be in my fresh engine reliability build thread.
