AE pro 28 leaking fuel out of front bearing

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
hey i was wondering if anyone else has noticed this with there engine that comes with the AE sc8 short course truck. fuel is leaking out of the front bearing of the engine. i have never had this problem with any other engine ive owned and am starting to think it might be why people have trouble starting this engine once it been running for a while as this could be an air leak as well. lmk what you guys think. thanks in advance.

leaking fuel

I find with most cheaper motor they use cheaper parts. Almost every motor I get I usely change the bearing as well as seal motor.

AE are known for engins with leaky front bearings. Are you sure its fuel and not oil? If its leaking really bad then change the bearing and seal up the engine.

If it leaks crap out, it can suck crap in. Change it asap.
Make sure to clean very thoroughly behind the flywheel.
