Last one for this week is the below flywheel seal.
This one is made of silicone and features a double lip for improved sealing.

The double lip runs over the flywheel on a “new” runway, where never ran a lip before, what gives extra changes for perfect  sealing.
BBT advice to polish the neck and runway for the seal on the flywheel before instalation.

We make this double lip flywheel seal over 25 years and is by far our most sold one.
