I had a thread a week or so ago "ms 200 needs help". Tore the saw down, vac tested and discovered leaky crank seals. Rather than risk boogering up the crank or the crankcase, I took the saw to a local servicing dealer to get the seals replaced. The tech took it to the back and came back about 10 minutes later and said he had pulled the seals and broke one of the new ones trying to install it. He told me he would have a new seal in three or four days and would call when he had it done.
Got the call this afternoon to pick up the saw. I vac tested it when I got it home and it would not even pull a vacuum. You could hear the air pulling through the seals. I immediately went back and explained the problem. I asked him what he had used to pull the seals. He replied I didn't use a puller I used a pick to get them out! He also stated that he installed them with a socket. He took the saw to the back once more and came back a few minute later and declared it fixed! Hear had smeared some kind of red sealant around the leaky seal and pulled a vacuum to suck the sealant between the seal and crankcase.
Look at the attached pics and you can clearly see where it appears he drove a pick between the crankcase and the seal to pry it out. The other pic is of the "fixed leak" with the red goop. He said it was fixed, run it and was clearly done and satisfied with his fix. It still will not hold a vacuum but the leak is slower due to the magical red sealant. I called the owner of the shop and am taking it to him to look at in the morning.
I told him about the tech's fix for a leaking seal and he said "he did what?" I will see in the morning where it goes from here the best I can tell I have much more major issues now than leaky oil seals!
