I am servicing a QD-18, and currently have the powerhead removed. Looking at the lower crankcase seal assembly, I can see a circular clip around the crankshaft. That circular clip holds in an expansion spring. On the parts diagram, it appears that behind the spring, there is a seal and two O-rings of different diameters.
While I have this powerhead off, I would like to replace any parts such as O-rings that always seem to need replacement. Can the seal and o-rings be accessed by removing the circular clip, or are they inside of the crankcase?
Thanks for any advice.
