Maxus 30HP Outboard 2 stroke (longshaft) - top crank seal

Hi Everyone,
I have a spare motor - 2011 Maxus 30HP 2Stroke Outboard (don't buy them - spare parts (because you always need them) are impossible to get.
I have tried parsun.com.au - no luck they don't stock the seals and cant tell me the specs.

Anyway - I'd like to get it running again and I need an oil seal for the top of the crank shaft.

if anyone can offer advice on the size and specs I will need that would be awesome.

*the 30HP Yamaha CV does not fit ($30 down the drain).

I've taken it to a Boat shop and they are unable to locate a suitable seal.
CBC and Statewide don't recognize the size either.

what a mission!

thanks in advance.

 Try Australasian Seals in Brennan Way Belmont. They should be able to match or make something.

Have you got the old seal

Have you got the old seal out? if you can get one to fit the shaft , get a sleeve made to adapt the outside to fit the crankcase. Done this a few times to keep old 2 strokes running.
I made up a mechanical seal assembly to get an old Evenrude running , as the crank was too corroded to use a rubber seal.
Most things are possible, just the cost limits that stop you.
