Won\'t stop leaking

My yz 250 engine won't stop leaking trans oil out of the seal by the sproket. I replaced it about 2 weeks ago and I still get a puddle about the size of a cd on the floor after one day. What can I do?

Re: Won\'t stop leaking

also with what was said here , check to see if there are any grooves in the shaft that the sprocket rides on , then if there arent any aperant reason for the leak , check your crank case vent , if its plugged it will guild pressure in the crank case and you will NEVER get a seal to hold

Re: Won\'t stop leaking

I realy don't want to machine it. I have already spent too much money on the conversion. Where would the vent be at?

Re: Won\'t stop leaking

Found it, the tube did prevent alot of airflow but it wasn't completly plugged. The tans wont build up any pressure if it's not running right? It's been sitting for a week now because I'm waiting for the atv salvage place in my area to open so I can get a new spindle. Can it leak from not being lubicated? It hasn't been drove for a week but I have been starting it every day, it didnt leak this much when I drove it.
