I just dropped a JDM B18C into my 96 Integra GSR, spun a bearing in the old one, and kinda liked the 8-more-hp idea. Anyway, once all together, I had a oil leak on the crank seal, because I had to swap oil pumps (no crank sensor on the JDM engine), and didnt replace the seal. It looked fine, so I reused it. Once running, i had a steady drip coming from behind the timing cover, down low. I tore it apart, saw that the trail started at the crank seal, so I replaced it. It has bee running leak free for a week now, but the last 2 days I have noticed a burnt oil smel at stoplights and such, and the top of the pan is damp. I have check the oil over a dozen times, and didnt notice a drop in the level until today. I thought that maybe the pan dampness/burning oil was due to improper torque sequence of the pan (yeah, i found a specefic sequence on AllData). Today, I saw the same steady drip when I got home, looks just like it did before I replaced the crank seal. SO. My questions are: Could I haver put the seal in wrong and dammaged it? Ive replaced a ton of seals on tons of engines, but never had this problem. The oil pump was from the spun-bearing-engine. I never saw bearing shavings anywhere but in the pan and pickup when I tore apart the old one, but could it have got in the oil pump, and caused enough dammage to leak like this? Im a little stumped here, any help/insight would be great.
