Remember to pay close attention to all areas, including the felt seal
application. It should be cut in short strips, soaked in sealant, and
vigorously packed in place.
I am passing through the cost of the Viton Seal, but hope to supply the
modified scroll seal on an exchange basis and the Centering Tool with
corrected dimensions from the Factory Manual.
There's more coming: Another of our racer's came up with special tool for
efficient packing of the felt seal. We are going to manufacture them and call
it MURPHY'S TOOL after Tim Murphy.
Finally: Kas' forthcoming new book has one chapter dedicated to oil leaks and
engine ventilation. We worked along side of Kas on this and Chris' new VITON
Seal is featured in the book.

A very timely note! I was literally installing the new seal in my 3A engine
this afternoon while you were typing it. The installation was knock down
simple, thanks to Chris's instructions and the modified scroll and
installation tool I picked up from you. I'm very pleased so far. Fingers
crossed, this will hopefully lead to a nearly spot free running engine. Even
with a drop or two I'll be happy, however, as I very much like not having to
machine off the scroll on the crank.
