Curious how many people have had problems with these. I'm on my 3rd rebuild in a 1 1/2 with probably 6,000km since originally installed...
I've had internal oil leaks everytime...

Thanks for info. I'm shocked to hear that more of you haven't experienced this internal oil leak.
I've heard of other people here locally with the same problem.

It gets much colder in Calgary than it does in Georgia, USA where the other guy is from. Cold metal, much like hot metal, and in fact most cold or hot things in general, just aren't as strong as normal temperature things. Maybe part of your issues are that up in Canada the winters are harder on the SC internals than summers are in Georgia, making things more prone to failure.

Possibly, but my car doesn't get driven in winter just during summer months..
