    Has anyone ever had a problem with a split crush gasket leaking? Did you replace it with one turned the other way which solved the problem? Serious question.

    Yep, understand how the 12 and 14 are configured. So how is the Smith 3 seat 14 configured? Same as 14 in front, narrow in the back?
