    Its a 95 Al. An i just looked in the clymer. I have to split the cases Im extremely angry becuase i just bought all new head gaskets an reasembled the damm thing. I give up on this thing!!!! Idk how it could have leaked. It didnt leak last year, or maybe i just didnt notice it. Would it run lean with a messed up crank seal??

    Do a leak down and verify the problem first.

    I understand that. But when i went to remove the little black plug is made a popping sound like there was no air inside the mag housing. An there was around 40cc's of oill stuff in the housing. Smelled like pre-mix.

    Maybe the previous owner was not too smart, and added oil in the cap? I've seen some real dumb people, do really dumb stuff! Do the leak down test before you jump to conclusions.

    Seal up the engine air tight. Plugs in heads, plug up carbs, plug up exhaust, etc. Put a vacuum pump on the impulse fitting and note how long the case holds vaccuum for. If it doesn't hold a vac for a few minutes, you have an air leak.
