Didn't sound like Josh was using a repair manual, so I thought that might prevent a huge mess wherever he's working.

Get to pull my starter off soon, pretty sure it's that o-ring leaking oil. Need to find an o-ring first.

Was going to hit Harbor Freight and see if I can find some, need a tiny one for Honda carb, and a coolant tube has been seeping on the VN, that o-ring is only a couple of years old.

I guess that o-ring on the starter must be close to 1" to 1.25"... 22-25mm?
