Default Werks b5 questions

I noticed that i have some fuel leak out of the front bearing behind the flywheel. Is this normal? This is not a large amount of fuel, but just enough for me to notice because of dirt being stuck around the flywheel area. I know its not fuel from the tank because its very clear that its coming directly behind the flywheel.

THanks!

hey noob


I haven't ran a B5 *yet*, but I have heard others mentioning this on a young motor. Once you get a race tune on there and lean it up a bit it shouldn't leak anymore.

If you have any problems get a hold of Brian or Bellman, they both run 'em.

I run a Clocked B6, same thing. Stopped weeping from the front bearing after about the first 1.5 tanks. So nothing to worry about, I'd say it's normal.

+1 These guys are right. If it tuned rich you will get some front bearing seapage from the excess oil. If you are fully raced tuned and running at optimum temps and the front bearing leaks badly then replace the bearing. But in most cases a small amount of seapage is normal.
