Default v65 Magna cluch question

I've got an '85 V65 Magna with a clutch problem. I was rebuilding the clutch master cylinder & noticed the seal around the clutch push rod was in bad shape (left side of the case). I've got a shop manual & it does not break the left side of the cluch ass'y. I've checked with the local dealer & they cannot identify the seal either. They have made 2 suggestions which I've ordered and rec'd but they are incorrect.

I need to get back on the road. Has anyone run into this before? Does anyone have a Honda OEM number for the seal? Can I replace the seal without pulling the cluch ass'y out of the right side of the case & digging back all the way to the left side? ANY help would be appreciated.

If you look up the picture for the Cross Shaft Assembly for the 1975 Honda VF700C there is a seal numbered part 23. Note where it is on the schematic. Now look up the Cross Shaft Assembly for the VF1100C and look in the same place. There's a seal there but the number was cut off when they scanned the schematic. I think that is the seal. Take your old seal and measure its dimensions. The seals listed on the parts list include the seal sizes.

If all else fails there are places that make seals in all sorts of sizes. You may have to search around but someone should have a seal that will fit.

Thank you. I'll give that a try. The seal fell apart on me so I can only go with the inner dimension, but hopefully that will be enough. Now If I can just get a new one in without having to gut the clutch - the weather is shaping up & I need to be on the road.

Good luck. The crossdrive assembly cannot be removed unless you remove the engine.

To all,

I tried the '85 VF700 - not the same diameter push rod. Spent about an hour with a very good mechanic & the local Honda dealer, he looked through a bunch of motorcycles & finally found the seal!! He used the shop manual from a PC800 - the OEM part number is 91204-MBO-013.

I hope nobody else has the same problem, but I thought I'd put it out here just in case.

Keep the greasy side down.
