Burton list the same front crank oil seal and gasket for both, so I believe the drive is the only difference. It's worth noting however that care is needed when aligning the earlier pump type.

Yes, also looks like the surface of the drive face almost doubled on the revised pump, and there is noticeable wear on mine (see top pic of crank).

Is this worth 'stickying'?
