after 3 back to back passes I looked back at the motor after the last pass and saw the front of the motor covered in gear lube. the seal on the drive snout blew out. its not that old only 2 seasons on it. should it last longer then that or do I have other issues ? I haven't pulled apart yet to inspect but I think the bearing is good. and I know it wasn't over filled.
Who installed the seal? There are some shit seals out there that aren't up to the task they are being used for. We had some shaft log seals that would piss water everywhere after one race. Bought few from Glenwood and still using the first one.
Its possible something got in the seal. Piece of bearing, or gear. Even a piece of cover gasket,
