    Any reason not to re-use the top and bottom crank shaft seals, if they’re in good condition? Use new O-rings though?

    I always use new o rings while in there. Be careful though, the o rings get hard and when you pry them out you can crack the carbon seal carrier. They are expensive.

    Yeah I have re used them. Some I have found to look good, only to crumble though after installing them. So inspect well before re using.
