There must be a lip seal where the driven horizontal shaft enters the oil-filled c-drive. There is oil on the inside, and a rotating shaft. A seal is needed. In this service a lip seal should normally last as long or longer than the lip seals on the crankshaft on the engine, or the ones on the transmission shafttoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Pretty much every rotating shaft with oil on one side has a lip seal. The only alternative is a carbon faced mechanical seal. Anything else gets pretty exotic...
