In the course of replacing the rear oil seal on the crank l have discovered a crack in the hub of fly wheel.

l have informed the local agent and thy are chasing up another one.

The 914 engine had done 800 hours and l have had it since new.

Has anyone come across a cracked fly wheel before?

    We have encountered this scenario previously; it's quite rare and might result from either improper installation or fatigue. The flywheel undergoes non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection as part of the overhaul process.
