Radial seal dry-fit test
Regarding leaking seals, did anyone slide the seal onto the replacement axle to see how well it fit?
I think you could get a pretty good idea if the thing was going to seal or not just from a test fit. If you can see daylight around the edges you know it's going to leak. But these types of seals normally give a pretty grippy fit without feeling too loose or too tight.
Anybody have experience with a bad test fit, followed by a leaky seal?
