Hey Hoss, Just did my seals this past weekend. my bike is also ablut 20 years old and had one leaky seal. the oil that came out of mine was totally black and stinky. On the side that was leaking, almost no oil was in there, on the "good" side, there wasn't much there either. dont know if it evaporates with age or what? The new oil of course is completely clear. I threw in some progressive springs also and I can tell a difference.
Good luck with your seal job.
