O ring oil leak after installing new Alt.
Hoping there is someone in here with an answer for me. My alt packed it in on my 88 GL 1500 a few weeks ago. It was the 707. Ordered a aftermarket new one on Amazon. Got it on Sunday and put it in bike. I had to get 2 new bolts because of the difference in hole size and changed the power bolt hook up to the one on my old alt since the new one is so large it doesn't fit in around corner. My question is how do I keep the o ring in place while installing because I am going to have to remove Alt again since I noticed oil leak. So obviously the o ring didn't stay put. Any advise is good.
