    Question Clutch Push Rod Seal - 440Z (1980)

    Hola Compadres!

    Well, the oil leak's gotten beyond a joke. Anyone know if I can change the clutch rod push oil seal without ripping the whole bluddy engine apart?

    I'm hoping I can just hoik it out from the side and push a new one in. Anyone done this on a 440Z (or 400z?)

    Cheerio

    No A/C haven't done it on a 400 but had the same trouble on my VN 1600 Nomad six months ago.
    Mechanic didn't have to take the engine out nor did he have to break the motor apart but it did take him a couple of hours to get at the problem and then fix it - I think it cost me three hours of work time. I'm using Darcy at Bike Performance off Pickering St Ennogera for things like that. He's serious and reasonable and straight up in relation to his work and his costs.

    Righto chaps. I pulled out the seal from the side. simple thin screwdriver in there, bit of pressure and "pop" it came out.

    It's 6mm interior diameter
    33mm exterior diameter
    9.5mm thick.

    It's neoprene rubber, in a metal 'cup'.

    I reckon The little spring compressor around the 6mm shaft is worn, which is causing the leak.

    Probably from the time my clutch push rod was bent, causing the seal to open up.

    Option A) new seal. Parts places are all like.. hmm Gee mate - never heard of one like that..
    Option B) new clutch push rod - get one machined up.

    Hmm..

    Photos coming

    This seal would fit a zillion other Kwakka's so should be readily available

    Couldn't find the exact model on cmnsl. Only found a 1980b1/b2 model. Mine is a "c" model. Are they interchangeable?
