Unhappy Losi 454 bearing help!

I was putting new clutch shoes on the fly wheel and noticed a wet residew behind the fly wheel. Took the fly wheel off and the front main bearing has been leaking fuel. Is it time to replace the bearing? The motor has about two gallons on it and the idle has been varing in speed but the middle and top end have been great. If new bearings what ones to go with.

i woulnt worry about it espially when the engine only has 2 gallons on it
its normal to have a little of a leak but not a whole lot it does it espilly when your engine is tune prety rich i have a nova thats on its 2 gallon and it does it and runs fine

Sounds like you have a bad bearing seal. I have a 454 with about 5 gallons of gas through it and it dosnt leak or seap a drop.
