Default Update on the Crankshaft leak - I have new seals I don't need now

Hello Everyone - quick update.

The other week I had the chance to take the prop of the RV7A, and do a good visual inspection around the outside of the crankshaft was bone dry (other than the little bit of grease I used when installing the seal that was still on the shaft).

Sanding in the Helix per the Continental SB certainly solved the issue. Now I have couple of extra new unopened seals, which I don't expect to use anytime if anyone wants to donate $18 to the Vans Airforce site let me know and I will send you a seal via US mail. I have the Superior Brand one piece seals for an O360.
