If this is true, my engine is fully disassembled at the moment and if it's an upgrade.. I would like to have it before I re-assemble.

Modifying esprit's.. now that's fun..

PS... I AM NOT A CERTIFIED MECHANIC.. I Have chosen to help those in need, in the past and must not be construed as being a certified technician.

The late front cover uses a smaller bearing (50 mm OD vs 55 mm OD). I looked for Service Bulletin 1997/20 which covers this change but it's missing from my folder. 1997/21 was there though, this is an addendum to 1997/20 that states that the oil seal sleeve should be assembled dry (i.e. no Hylomar). HTH.
