leaking 113

I have a 113 ultima which has little to no miles and is leaking between the spacer and the output shaft.

Is the spacer supposed to be loose? I can move mine about 1/8" in and out.

Mine leaks while sitting still and not running. I dont think it leaks when heated up but more when cools down. I have the open primary off and cleaned everything and found oil coming through between the spacer and the shaft so I am pretty sure thats it.

What kind of job is it to take the seal, spacer out to fix the problem? Will the o-ring behind the spacer fix my problem?

I have a Ultima 127 and was told by SMW to put a very small amount of silicone on the crank shaft between the shaft and the spacer. Once I did no more leak. Just dont use to much or you will have silicone in the oil system also let it dry before you run it. you will need to fill in the splines of the gear......

Hello all. I have had the same problem. I've tried every suggesting here and then some and cannot get the seal to stop leaking. I'm leaning towards a breather issue. Any suggestions on how to go about trouble shooting this?
