    Yes Glen, that's pretty neat, I didn't realize there was a kit to do that, I thought it was only on the ones with the lugs in the case like Steve's picture.

    Kinda cool that we keep discovering new stuff about our ~60 year old aircraft and engines.

    Toss the split seal and put a solid one on it. If you have fresh 3M weather stripping, use it on the outer surface. Clean the inner seal bore with MEK or ?? first. Let the adhesive cure for a day.

    We did use a solid (non-split) seal, cleaned and used the Dow 737 as described in the Lycoming SI. Looks good, put a couple hours on it Tuesday and Thursday and no new evidence of leaks.
    Thanks all for your advice.
