    Default Guzzi Le Mans Garage Fun for 18/19

    Been fiddling with my DT175MX over the last few months, general clean up, respraying the exhaust and new throttle cable (that doesn't fit and I'll need another) balnce the wheels and fix a puncture. Its nearly back together so time to start on the Le Mans.
    It's been running the best ever since the carb overhaul, investing in vacuum gauges to balance them amd fitting new points, but now it's developed an oil leak.
    Originally I thought it was from the sump plug, but now reckon it's the rear crankshaft seal. So it's an engine out job, gearbox, clutch and flywheel off and extract the oil seal somehow.
    Going to buy a couple of special tools for replacing the seal and aligning the clutch. I've had the engine out before and the gearbox off before so not expecting any problems there, my biggest concern is getting the old oil seal out.

    Lots of pics please. Hope the carrier comes out ok, there's a lot of information/
    horror stories on wildguzzi and this old tractor about it (grandma, eggs, probably). The favourite appeared to be putting the crankcase in a hydraulic press then using the crank to push out the carrier and bearing, making sure you catch it on the way out!!! Once you've done it you can do mine
