Awesome seal driver!

It's better to remain silent and be considered a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

Lifebiker, This bike has less than 800 mi on it. It's a barn find. Piston was melted. All I did was polish theplastic with a good cleaner & plastic polish. I lucked out in that it spent all it's life stuffed in a building. Tank is still discolored from fuel vapeing thru it, but looks ok for now. To really make this resto nice I would need to purchase new plastic. Undecided on that as getting it finished & running is priority. The petina doesn't look to bad either. I can live with it as a rider. Thanks for the comments on this project. :) :Buds

The new PVC seal driver works great, but,,,:unsure:
This was the last seal I installed, fly wheel side, it was the toughest to get out & the roughest to get back in.
Lubed all of them with oil before install & was ok till this one.
Is it a runner or should I try again? I'm showing a couple of angles for you guys to look at. Your feed back is needed, please.
It had a couple of small puckers in the original so I am guessing that this will be ok.

It looks like it just shaved off a little rubber from the outside of the seal, possibly at a slight angle on install ? Most likely that will be ok but I would do a crankcase pressure test b4 you start up. The info on how to do that is in the search file

So I've learned something new... THANKS ENDURONUT for your help.
Wisco & Yamaha wrist pins are different lengths...:huh:
At least for IT175E
Make sure you have the correct pin length for your piston of choice !!

WISCO PIN, 58.40 OAL


Yamaha O.E. PIN, 56.80 OAL, rounded off
