Any great engine guru's explain to me why saito puts a sealed bearing on the rear in this engine. I have to replace the rear one in mine and it seems you would get more oil flow through a bearing without the seals. And since there are two cams, need all the flow you can get. This is the only Saito I have seen that never spits any oil out the vent tube.

I've got 2 saitos a 120 and a 56. Can't ever remember seeing much oil come out of my vent lines either.

Most times you won't really see any coming out, but there will be drops of oil in the line,,,that is to say if you put on a vent line which really should be done to keep the engine from sucking in air,,,or dirt .

And I have too many saito's, two twins and 5 singles. Just wish I had airplanes for all of them.
