Ok I have a 77 shovel and can't seem to stop the main shaft seal to stop leaking on motor I have polished shaft coupler and replaced seal 3 times and have now broken 1 primary belt in 6 months does anyone know a fix to this other than tearing motor down and reaming out breather gear

Do you have belt primary or chain? It could be you have the seal in backwards. With chain primary the hollow side of the seal faces out. On a belt primary the flat side of the seal faces out.
