Hi, I am new to this forum and I am looking for help with finding a good part number for the front crank seal for my 1200. It is leaking quite a bit and needs to be replaced. I worked on the PCV system as suggested on another site but I might not have gotten it all fixed.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
91201-MG9-005 OIL SEAL (35X59X8) try this number.
trike lady; There was quite a discussion on another site about this seal. The one for the 1200's is discontinued, this # is the exact same seal...except, it has small ribs that are directional, one guy said he did a lot of research and that seal is a 1500 part. Ok, same size..so?

He was thinking because the 1200's crank rotates clockwise..& the 1500's are counterclockwise that that seal may leak. His point was the ribs will direct oil out of the seal, instead of in as designed.

I may not be explaining it right,but, the ribs are oriented in the opposite direction on the proper 1200 seal. Do you think this is a valid point? Or just over thinking the problem?
Just want to know for my own interest.:D

welcome Bruce! Bladeruner that's an interesting thought, I'll mention that to my Honda tech when I ask about the valve train on the 1500's.

The ribs should run parallel with the edges of the seal and not direct the oil in any direction, just keep it in the engine.

Well, before I got my '88 I got 3 of those seal to have on hand..I have 2 1200's. When looking closely at the ribs, they are definitely directional..they "spiral" for lack of a better term, kinda like a helical cut gear.

I stand corrected. I guess Honda has a better idea. If it keeps things going for as long as a Wing does, it must work.
