Hmmm. seems like I have had just as many front seals leak as rear 2pc. and with the front being a 360 since inception--------something to ponder; I think seals work fine until they wear enough off the crank surface to allow a leak. New seals on a new crank work fine; new seals on old crank many times will leak almost immediately.
