Just a quick question,

I suspect a leaky clutch side seal in my 1978 P125X (I'm getting 2 stoke in my gear box oil and it's at times dripping)

Is it possible to pull the clutch and change the seal with the engine still in the frame? Or do I need to pull the engine?

thanks for any advice.

You need to split the engine to change the seal. You can do it either way but splitting is necessary...

Thanks very much for the reply.

for some reason I thought I could access the seal if I just pulled the clutch basket.

appreciate the clarification.

If your clutch side seal is leaking, your gearbox oil will smell like gasoline. If you're leaking 2t oil, then you have some other problem, which is probably better than a clutch side seal failing.
