Crank seal and starter clutch
Just trying to get a few more jobs finished on my wifes 85 250.
There appears to be a leak underneath the engine, I think I've pinpointed it to the rotor/flywheel cover. I'm guessing this is the crank seal that has probably popped out due to the pressure. I've attached a pic of where the leak is. It occasionally drips onto the exhaust pipe, sometimes no drips at all.
I know there'd be some issues, it's a bike that was not so taken care of and not serviced or rode in a long time.
Other than removing the rotor cover, removing the flywheel/rotor, the rubber seal if in good shape can be popped back in?
Do I need any special tools, I was going to buy a 16mm 1.5 pitch bolt to help pop the rotor off the end of the crankshaft. Any special type of just a longish bolt, put in, tight it up, crack a hammer, tighten up again, crack hammer and hopefully the rotor comes off.
While I'm in there I was going to check the starter clutch. It's making the embarassing strangled goose sound after pressing the starter. Does the whole starter clutch need replacing or is there a kit of the usual failed parts for the clutch.
Just figured while I have the rotor off I should do everything in there.
