Thread: Cam side oil seal size

    Cam side oil seal size

    Hi guys.
    '06 XB9SX.
    I have developed an oil leak from the cam cover where the
    wiring exits. I assume is the crank seal. Does anyone have
    the seal size. I dont currently have alternate transport, so
    I need to get the old one out and new one in, in one operation.

    Thanks
    Robin

    St Paul or Twin Motorcycles (or even Amazon) can deliver the part to your door.

    It was used on Sportsters from 71-03, so it should be readily available from any place that sells Harley parts.

    Thanks, that would be a last option though, as my door is in Pretoria South Africa, so shipping costs
    and time make it much easier for me to buy local, if I have the size.

    Robin: Your assumption may be wrong. Failing 2006 cam side outer crank seal typically results in engine oil transferred to primary/trans sump. You'll know it when it happens. Failing trans output shaft seal likely the culprit as per your description. You need to investigate further to determine.

    2006 all XB trans shaft seal is part # 12074-suffix L6C. Readily available and reasonably priced thru any H-D dealer. You'll need both the pulley locking tool, correctly sized pulley nut socket and near super-human strength to remove same. I know of NO factory source or available independent info listing the specific seal dimensions. Google may be your friend for same though I doubt it.
