If anyone has any solutions it would be much appreciated.
I recently changed the clutch on my mk2 ABF and thought while I'm there ill change the crankshaft seal. I bought a febi one which didn't have the rubber spring in like the old one and had a felt front covering. Im guessing it was the new style design of the seal as i have read on other forums. It fitted nicely and i though sweet. sorted. good job.
I put it all back together and took it for a spin to a cruise. When i got there, massive puddle of oil under the car. (engine oil) So i limped home and took the gearbox, clutch and flywheel back off. The oil was leaking into the gearbox bell housing and out of the seep hole at the bottom.
The clutch was clean which suggests it was coming from the crank seal i fitted.
I did notice when taking it all apart again that the old seal had worn slightly into the end of the crank which may have caused this issue but i wouldn't have though it would piss out so drastically when i stop the car and the sump fills back up.
Maybe its coming from the corner of the sump gasket where it was disturbed when fitting the new crank seal.
don't really want to get the crank reground. Bit of a pain that i can't test it without putting it all back together and gearbox back on.
Has anyone had this issue before and any opinions and solutions would be much appreciated.
