the RX8 seals sit that low normally, so no it isn't in too far.


but anyways i digress. it may leak because your work area cleaning skills suck.

It's fine. Actually might be slightly advantageous because the original seal would have worn a groove into the flywheel. You've now moved that new seal out of the groove.

Awesome. Thanks guys.

And all that stuff on the crankshaft is fresh grease. I was tryin to get the pilot bearing out with the grease trick. That **** don't work. Ended up going to harbour freight and buying their bearing puller. Besides that, I'm doing all this from under the car, which is on jack stands, so give me a break.

I almost posted that. It's an old trick that works well. Clean rotating surface good, no nicks or roughness.

Well I got it all back together. Took it for a hard drive and no leaks. Thanks for all the input.
