That was me who Julie referred to ref DS seal sets being out of stock - had to buy individually.
On the subject of seals, on the crank seal (CB end), the seal has a steel shim face on one side - based on the seal lip, does that face inward?
Metal face inwards Phil, same as CB750/4.
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

CB550 oil seal set from DS £43.58 inc vat and post. Total of ten seals. Just for information for those who need to know.
I’ll hang on to the ones sourced from Japan as ‘emergency spares’ unless anybody on the forum has had success with them.
