Oil leaking from Timing Belt Cover
I have a oil leak from the timing belt cover. Took off cover and it appears to be leaking from the camshaft seal. How hard is it to replace that seal. Anyone have a how to guide? Also where might I be able to get a seal for a 1984 Aspencade GL1200.

Oops I meant it is leaking from the CRANKSHAFT seal. How do I get the old seal out and a new one in? Plus where can I buy a seal. Anyone know the part number?

Here you go. Part #13. cost $11.35.

When I replaced my camshaft seal I just drove it into place from the front after removing the pulley,

Also when I did the alternator conversion I had trouble getting the crankshaft bolt loose, it finally came loose by using an impact after I placed a long bar through the rear wheel with the engine in gear and then turning the bolt until the bar came up under the mufflers (padded of course) and I had my wife standing on the rear brake, The rear brake would not hold the engine by itself.

I have 4 new seals, I wanted to have spares. The crankshaft seal for the 1200 is "discontinued",but, my local Honda parts guy did a cross reference..the 1500 seal is the same part; I apologize I can't put my hand on one at the moment..and I don't know the # off hand. :oops: You should be able to get a 1500 seal from any Honda dealer.

unionjack,

how did you get the original seal out?

My understanding is the 1500 is the wrong one, it is for a crank that turns the opposite direction as the 1200.

I replaced the camshaft seal after it spun out when the bike got frozen over one cold night sleeping by the side of a freeway between two snow banks going up into Utah.

The crank bolt I took out when I was adding a pulley for the alternator conversion.

I would be very interested in finding one of these seals myself. The BikeBandit link didnt work and when I asked local dealer he said discontinued as well. Local bearing/ seal supplier couldnt seem to procure either. Any results (good/ bad/ indifferent) on using the 1500 seal? I worry that with Japan having survival issues making old GL1200 parts are the last thing on their minds...
