Make sure the place where the "O" ring goes is clean and free of what ever ...
"i" also use as a MAKE SURE it does not leak by applying a little "SEAL-ALL" glue ...
This stuff is good for fuel line fittings, certain gasket applications, in place of safety wire(certain applications), pluming and a lot of other applications that you will discover as you start using it ...
You can get it at "Mom & Pop" hardware stores ...
MAY THE LONG LASTING BUELL BE WITH YOU !!!

if the metal cable cover is compromised, the oil will leak because it is outboard of the seal.

I put about eight inches of shrink-tubing with a little silicon seal in it over the lower end of my clutch cables, then shrink it up. Seals the bottom end of the cable real well.

Wow, that's a good idea!

Tom, I did the same thing! It worked great. Still does about 2 years later.
