As to the benefits of fitting seals, I have them on my SR since I built it so probably 30k miles,
oil consumption is negligible and carburaution improves as air is not drawn down the guides

Thanks for the info John. Good site and i have kept a note of it.

Your post has confirmed my thinking on the benefits of oil seals. I have ordered a few from SRM to fit on my rebuild and other heads i have to work on when i get the chance.

Don't know if you are having any trouble getting parts from the UK lately through Flea bay. My Super Rocket valves and a few other bits have disappeared in the post.  *angry*
In fairness to the guys they have reposted with no bother.  *smile*

I had a delivery on a pair of A7 SS crankcases from a well know dealer on Monday. They were very dirty and looked exactly like the pictures on Flea bay. However, when i put them in the parts washer there was a bloody big hole filled up with car body filler. I rang the shop and they were a bit disbelieving until i sent them on photos of the hole. They did a refund the same day which was good.
I was thinking of recommending them to visit Specsavers.  *lol*
