'87 Interstate.
I can't bring up the fiche, but which seal is needed if the slave is leaking?
There are two showing on the fiche. Numbers 13 & 14.

Thanks, Redwing. I suspect you're right.
Ken, are there other slave cylinders on the 12?

Well, here's evidence of how punctual I am.
I opened up the cylinder and looked at the cup, and it looks good. The #14 seal is definitely tweaked. However, looking at the unit, it looks like that seal wouldn't cause a leak because there's no fluid there.
It looks like that seal was damaged by the certified Honda mechanic who did the stator replacement. Am I safe to guess then, that the seal in the motor is probably also tweaked and needs replaced?
Here's a pic.

Well, I got a mirror in there and looked. The seal looks like it's leaking a little. On the inner piston seal, that missing piece of rubber is folded inside, causing the pin to sit unevenly and I'd guess, put more wear on the engine seal.

The big question is...how does one replace that seal? I'd hate to have to pull the motor for this.
