Yes thanks, I've already got one. I just want to verify that this is the problem. The stupid engine's already been out twice now for inspection. I want to make sure that this is the last time.
P.S. Thanks for the info DD!

Thanks for the reply but there is no groove, it's a fresh motor. I didn't measure it because it wasn't scored, but it didn't look machined. I am thinking now that it must have been machined undersized at sometime. I'd like to verify what size it should be versus what it is.

Crankshaft Big End Diameter?

Does anyone know what the A14 Crank Big End Diameter is supposed to be? You know, where the rear crank seal runs. Also, the diameter of the FS5W60A main drive gear where the front oil seal runs.... These are both leaking badly even though they're both correct and brand new...

I am running two Mikuni HSR42 carbs. So far they are excellent! The Throttle response is awesome and no flat spots. Super easy to tune. Large float bowls and an accelerator pump. Fit on standard Mikuni, Weber or S.U. manifolds.......

Does the aluminum H-145 diff center use the same parts as the Iron one? Specifically the Pinion flange and the crush sleeve.

Yep, sealed that up... At the last removal you could see that it was coming from the seal area. It just doesn't make any sense. The trans is leaking more. I'm not talking about a small leak here, after a drive out to the racetrack, when I stopped for breakfast it dropped more than half a quart of 'fluid' on the ground. I used red engine oil and gold trans oil so I could tell the difference, but after a few hundred miles it's all kind of all brown so hard to tell where the bulk is coming from.... I got some UV dye so I can diagnose where exactly it's coming from.

I did not measure it, but it came in a Fel-Pro lower end kit so I'd assume it's correct. The end of the crank wasn't scored or beat up so I don't think I measured it either since it looked smooth and original, but maybe it's somehow undersized? I have a thin wall repair sleeve for it which I might try next. The Transmission is the same situation except I'm sure that the seal is correct. The Input shaft must somehow be undersized. Either way, it's got to come out again (for the third time!) so I guess I'll measure these items again.
I wonder though, can the case and tranny somehow be pressurizing? They don't leak while just running though, only after a drive.

It's the rear main seal, but it's brand new and it looks fine......

My newly built A14 can't seem to keep the fluid inside! Seems to be leaking from both the front of the transmission (60A 5 speed), and the back of the engine. Both are leaking out of the bell housing. The motor has been out twice now for inspection and nothing looks wrong! Ideas anyone?
