    viton seal questin

    Just ordered a viton seal for my blower. I see that the viton seal have 2 sealing lips against the shaft and the oem one has 1 lip. Could the outer lip on the viton seal then burn because it's not "cooled" by the engine oil? Just a thougt when looking at the picture.

    No. Just install it and don't think about it again. This seal has an excellent track record and worth every penny...

    Yes the viton seal is a double lip seal where as the oem seal is a single lip. You will have no issues.

    The Vitons are rated for a higher heat deterioration rating which allows it to withstand higher heat...Also when i install the vitons i put a small amount of white lithium grease in between the two lips......

    Good idea. Is lithium grease the same as isoflex?
