    carbon seal?

    I've been reading a lot about his carbon seal. I have on 08 RXP-X with 160 hrs on it. The carbon seal has never been replaced. Is it a fly to fail part? is there any way to look at it and tell it's about to fail? I can't even find it on the parts diagram can anyone point me in the right direction?

    You`ll find the carbon ring on the OEM parts finder, under this section. Engine....Propulsion System-Internal. It`s part No 35 in the list, #271001420.
    They usually dont really fail completely, sometimes they get hairline cracks in them....you could check it for those. If it`s not leaking then there`s nothing wrong with it. Iv`e read somewhere on the forum here about some guys changing this out every year, for peace of mind. If it`s not badly worn id just leave it.....but it`s entirely up to you
