Due to imbalance rotation of main shaft (connected to expeller),

this small bearing (above) damage and become loose causing engine oil leak.

For temporary, we just clean it because we don’t have proper tool and spare part.

What you have to do;

  1. Disassemble everything
  2. Clean everything with any chemical e.g degreaser
  3. Find broken/loose parts
  4. If need to be replace, replace them.
  5. Put everything together again. (don’t forget gasket/silicon gasket maker)
