[DML] Re: front main seal leak

How much blow-by do you have. If the crankcase is building up positive
pressure you will never fix all of the leaks. Pull the oil filler and
see if pressure is coming out. Make sure the metering nipple is not
clogged up on the cold start injector tube. The crankcase MUST be
under negative pressure so you don't leak oil. When was the last oil
change? if the oil is full of metal particles you will ruin any new
seals you put in. If it is the wrong viscosity it will also cause it
to leak.
