    New Engine, are Seals Fitted Correctly????

    I have just picked up my "re-built" 1050 which was 8+ months in the making and looking at it I don't remember seeing the crank seal (pto end) with the spring showing (see pic). Can anyone confirm if this is assembled correctly be fore I take it back tomorrow?
    I do know that the cylinder heads have been installed back to front (E X is to the inlet side).
    many thanks cheers Dave.

    On the PTO end there is 2 seals,One face each way.The outer one is to keep water out from get into the motor.

    It "Lives"

    Thanks to everyone for their help and input, the engine is in and running, hopefully I'll be out on the water tomorrow to put some hrs on it.
    thanks again Dave.

    Congrats!!! Do yourself a favor and leak test that engine. It will be nbetter to catch an air leak sooner than later.

    Thanks xlint89, I was assured that the engine was pressure tested when I picked it up. Is there any easy way to "leak test" the engine in the hull with all the manifolds on? The company that did the work was made aware that their previous re-build failed due to an air leak (at 5.3 hrs) so hopefully they have done what they have said.
    cheers Dave.

    Seal up the carbs or intake manifold air tight. Seal up the exhaust pipe air tight. Then apply 9 psi of vacuum or pressure to the pulse fitting on the block. This should hold for a few minutes, if not, you have a leak. Use soapy water to help locate the air leak if present. Check crank seals, intake gaskets, base and head gaskets.
