Leak after rebuild
I rebuilt my nosedrive, and now I have a pretty good leak. In the last 2 or 3 weeks, I lost enough that it took a third of a bottle to bring the oil level back up to the threads. After peering between the snout and pulley, I see a piece of seal, looks pretty much like an o-ring, hanging out on its own. Obviously not doing its job, I would think. I looks like a piece of the center of the snout seal came out.
When i rebuilt the snout, it spun pretty freely till I put the seal in, then it felt pretty tight, but I could still rotate it by hand. I assumed that was normal for a new seal. Was I wrong? Did I manage to damage it during installation?
