Sorry about the photos, reposting. I just ordered a new shaft seal. Going to try my luck to fix it and hope that solves the problem. While I am at it I am probably going to swap the drier. No UV dye was visible anywhere on the system except the compressor. Its very bright as I ran an entire can through the system just to make sure.

photo is from above the compressor, I ran a whole can of UV refrigerant through to get the full view

A nd this is the front pulley/clutch area, couldn't get a photo of the clutch but the clutch was covered in UV dye. Is it fairly simple to find the shaft seal kit for the Seiko Seiki compressors?
