    The oil seal on my hydraulic wheel motor has come out several times. I've noticed it is a fairly loose fit compared to some other oil seals I've installed but I'm wondering if it could be a symptom of a larger problem. I plan to get a fresh seal and install it once the stores open after Easter in hopes that it fixes the problem, but I'm realistic and know it shouldn't have come out in the first place if everything is ok....

    Is it possible for hydraulic pressure to get behind the seal and push it out if the motor is worn? I've never been into one so I'm not familiar with their layout. Any help is appreciated.
