I doubt it was the seals swelling-the oil was dripping out after I flushed it the 1st time. They were severely shagged due to pitting on the shaft. There was a LOT of water in the case on both occasions.

Suggestion for a test rig.....50cc oil and 10cc water-stick them in a blender and see the difference.

Great idea - but then you have to test the lubricity - may get a mate in Uni to stick it on a test rig.

Remind me not to have any chocolate milkshakes if I am round at your place

Good idea though. Preferably using somebody who you don't like's blender
