my crankshaft seal is leaking. Does anyone have the step by step on how to replace? Also what is the part number, and where can I buy one. I have a 1984 GL1200 Aspencade.

The crankshaft pulley has to come off for that, and the timing belts. Procedure for timing belts on the 4 cylinder Wings is here: http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/...422&forum_id=9

The seal size is (35X59X8)mm. I've searched online and can find 35X58X8 and 35X60X8 seals but not 35X59X8.

Welcome ., You dont list your miles so will assume age is the factor here.
If you cant find a replacement seal you can try the fix in a can thing. There are additives available to add to your oil to swell out old seals if they are not worn out.
Go to your local auto parts store and describe your problem , they will point you to the appropriate can .

We had this seal discussion 3 or 4 years ago and as I recall, the GL1500 crankshaft seal is 35 X 59 X 8 just like the 1200 seal. The part number is 91201-MN5-003.

I meant to add that the same seal fits the Valkyrie. You can get it here:

my understanding is the 1500 seal is made of a shaft that spins the opposite direction and does not work.



As for mile the odometer stopped working at 245000+ Im guessing it has 260 or 270.



Doesn't the seal in a can cause other problems?
