Oil in Stator Cover????

Ok I dont know if this is a stupid question or not but is the Stator/Flywheel cover suposed to be full of oil??? I have never worked on one of these motors before but I know that on all of my quads and dirtbikes over the years the flywheel was dry.
Anyway if it isnt suposed to have oil in it I guess its time for some serious work.

No that housing should be dry. sounds like a bad crank seal. Most of the time its the other end that starts to leak, right after a drive belt blows apart. Time to yard the motor out.

Yard it out?? Because of a seal...
The motor only has about 80 hrs on it.

Does anyone know if I can replace the seal without splitting the cases??
I know it can be done on the pto side but is this side different?
This sucks

No, you don;t need to split engine, front crank seal is actually in front cover of the engine. But you need to pull engine out to do that, if you will buying parts don't forget to buy front cover gasket too. Plus you will need puller for magneto, I used chevy balance puller, but MCX is selling very nice one now.
Number one is the front crank seal.

Re: Oil in Stator Cover????

Ok I pulled off the cover behind the stator and guess what I found. The crank seal wasnt even pressed in the hole. It was just kinda cocked sideways sitting on the crank.
Anyways it doesnt look like I will have a lot of trouble getting it back up and running. Thanks for the info guys.
