The only push rod in your bike is the clutch push rod. It is on the left side of the engine and between the flywheel and the chain sprocket. Just remove the left side chain cover to gain access to the rod. Pull the rod out of the center casing then use a screwdriver to pry the old seal out. Then just put a new seal in its' place and re-install the rod. The rod will not need to be replaced unless it is bent or is pitted from rust where it runs through the seal.

    Yes, it should pull out easy. If not, the rod is probably bent. You will not hurt anything inside the engine by pulling the rod out. Got vise grips?

sounds like the clutch push rod is bent and the seal has more pressure on one side so leaking ! pull rod out and see if it can be straightened , if not then replace it and the seal !

1990 flh harley davidson oil leak from pushrods


Hi Singerpro86, you need to double check the correct seating of the inner push rod tube against the quad/o-ring seal in the cylinder head.
Good luck and have nice day.

My cement mixer stopped working today took engine apart and one of the push rods are bent shop wants 180 pounds to fix it but a Push rod is only 3 pounds is this easy to do myself? Engine is a honda...


Hello...ok..the first thing you want to consider is why the push rod bent in the first place...This usually happens because the cylinder is full of fuel because the spark plug is not firing...but this is for multi cylinder engines...
have you ever changed the oil???..You have to do this..even on small engines...If this engins has a pull starter..Did it turn over or did it sieze up....If it turns over...carefully remove the rocker arm....replace the bent push rod...it should pull straight out after you remove the rocker arm..replace the rocker arm....re assemble the engine parts using the proper gaskets...making sure everything is sealed...drain and replace oil.If the engine siezed up...then you have to get to serviced or replaced..I hope this was helpful.....let me know...PEACE...

Oil leak between primary and trans


A leak in that area can be caused by a number of things. There is an oil seal on the backside of the primary cover that could be leaking. Also, there is a large seal in the end of the transmission that could be leaking. Usually when I pull the inner primary, I replace all seals in that area whether they are leaking or not. When you replace any seal, put a sealant on the outside surface of the seal where it seats into it's recess. Also lubricate the seal lips on the inside of the seal. If you don't, when the engine starts, friction will burn up the lips on the seal before oil can get to it. It only takes a second at 2000 RPM's to build up enough heat to burn the lips on the oil seal you just installed.

Good Luck
Steve

Hi i have a 1994 dodge caravan it is leaking oil can this be fix im worry that we would have to save money for a van for my kids thanks


The Chrysler minivan products all had leaking problems. I have had 5 or 6 different Dodge or Plymouth minivans from 88 to 99. How bad is it. The most common thing is Valve cover leaks. Front and rear seals in the engine leak as well as the oil pan gasket. If its leaking a little bit at a time open the hood and look at the front and rear of the engine. Do you see grease and oil that has gone down the sides of the engine? Do you see a lot of grease on the engine with some clean streaks going through it. You may be able to see where its leaking from. If you know someone that knows what their doing have them change the leaky gasket/s. If not you can probably have it repaired for less than buying another van unless other things are seriously wrong with the van.
Hope this helps... Dale

Grease leaking from front end


Check the axle boot. When they rip or crack they will sling grease around.
