|Is your rotor centered? My R&M 2110 used to leak oil out of every seam practically, until I realized that the rotor was too far back. Not sure about the SMY, but the rotor on my R&M has oil grooves on each side (much like the ones on the blade hub), and the front one wasn’t inside the oil-return, which caused the leaking. A few fiber washers got the rotor centered, and the oil groove back where it belongs, and now the fan can actually hold oil.
GEs are great in my experience. I run a 1922 12” AOU and a 1947 10” Vortalex almost daily, and they have been amazing.
