There may be a groove worn into the sealing surface of the
crank damper in which case a new front seal by itself will
not stop the leak. Check the wear surface for a groove.
If one is present, you must fit a repair sleeve to the
damper before installing the new seal. If you can't get a
sleeve for a Rover, use one for a '62-'87 Buick V-6. It
must be positioned at the point of wear and should be
locked in place with Locktite Stud and Bearing Mount or
similar. If not locked in place, it will "walk" away from
the contact spot since it is not really long enough to
cover the whole surface.
