The factory stamped unit uses a flimsy and very thin rubber surface to seal around the crankshaft. The crank is constantly spinning inside this seal too so over time as heat cycles are put through the engine, the rubber will expand and contract and become brittle, especially when it is constantly saturated with oil. iABED’s replacement solution uses a patented billet machined plate that is bored to a larger diameter so that a Viton rubber seal can be used. The Viton seal is more heat resistance, fluid resistant, and more than twice as thick.
