If it is leaking where my Wd-45 is, i have tried several things to stop it, the reason it leaks is because the metal reatianer on top of the crank doesn't clamp down on the crank to seal it, it just kinda sits on top, if that is the problem, put two or three of the square type gaskets, put gasket sealer or sylicon sealer between the gaskets and where it seats to metal, it should take care of the issue, but i'm not possitive.
Good luck. Because it has really made me mad.

When seals still leak even after replacement it is usually caused by excess bearing clearance or crankcase pressure due to blowby. Check that your crankcase breather is free. Is it possible to get a thicker rope seal? I've heard that you can bunch them up a bit to make the fit tighter. Best of luck.
