Woohoo! Finally got a set of Steeda's for da bird. No piggyback here, and for $70 shipped! I have searched, and just wanted to be clear on this, so don't hang a guy for asking.
I know that I need to put silicone sealer on the keyway for the crank or it will leak.
The question I have is I was talking w/ a local performance shop that I freqently use, and the guy also happened to own a nice semi-built 95 a while back. He said that he recommneds getting an aluminum/steel sleeve that fits over the crank pulley where it slides into the front seal. Mentioned that after he installed his, that the U/D slowly cut into/wore out the front seal and it developed an oil leak. Is this true, or did he just mess up on the install?
Also, can you use the stock crank bolt for the u/d pulley? I'm not sure if I have the long one to set it into the crank with or anything like that, so I was just going to use the orig. crank bolt to pull the pulley back onto the crank and torque to spec. Good? Bad?
Thanks in advance- Jay
