why would the crank shaft seal start leaking if ran a leaf blower with very lean 2 cycle fuel?
I ran my leaf blower for quite a long time with 2 cycle fuel that did not have the recommended amount of 2 cycle oil. and i didnt know that but realized when the engine kind of started backfiring etc. that i maybe had been running 2 cycle fuel in it that was about 1/3 less oil than recommended.
I have used the leaf blower regardless and the engine still runs fine (after correcting the fuel) , but the crank shaft seal is leaking. why this might have happened and how likely just replacing the crank shaft seal will solve the problem?

Dude, throw the blower away before you lose your mind.
