If it is an NR engine then it is that the front bearing is mis aligned. Get someone with a bearing extraction tool and oven to help you!

However, some engine (eg.HPI .15SS) simply leak whatever you do to it!

If yours is a Nova based engine, you can use this link as a guide. It has illustrative pictures too.
