Right side on my k6 was running rough, backfiring and finally died. Plug was wet with gas. Cleaned plug and she ran great for a little while. Cleaned carb, didn't help. Started to check points. When I loosened off the points cover what appeared to be a mixture of oil and gas came out. I have no idea what could be the problem. Help please.

Sounds like your point seal is leaking and fouling out the points.
Not sure why it smells like gas - that's not good.
I suggest you change oil today, and examine the old oil closely.
If it has any trace of gas in it, you need to stop now and figure out what's going on.........

I was looking at a schematic at Bike Bandit and they list 2 different oil seals. Is 1 or both of these the point seals you were referring to? Also are the points ruined by this oil or can they be spared? Are there any other parts that are likely to be damaged by this? I'm a newbie, as I'm sure you can tell, and I'd really rather not tear it apart until I have what I need to put it back together.I'm sure after I get the leak fixed I'll have questions on getting the timing back. Thanks for all your help.

No, just the one - part #25 in the fiche.
Take ff the point plate and advancer, then pick out the old seal without damaging anything other than the old seal.

Depends on how oill-saturated the points got - if they're totally drenched, it might be prudent to replace them, up to you......
