I have a leak coming from this area which i believe is the crankshaft?? I had the crankseal done about 6 weeks ago. When they did the seal they said the shaft had been scored where the seal is and said it may still leak, in which case i would need a new shaft.

I did put a thread on yesterday but have now had a proper look myself.
Can anyone confirm this? how much it would it cost and would it really be worth getting it done?

I really hate oil leaks, and cant put my mind at rest.
