It's not the outside rubber that seals the metal cap. I think it's un inside rubber o-rong that seals the bearing-pen and the metal cap under the upper tropple clamp.
Thanx for your reactions

Regards

I just looked at the parts book, and shows nothing between the metal cap, and the T-clamp. The pic does show a sealing ring between the cap, and the bearing. It is labeled "54601184000 STEARING HEAD GASKET TOP."

I haven't had mine apart for a while, but I think the seal is so labeled because, as Hipster said, it is not a standard o-ring.

That small o-ring is in the wrong spot.

There should be large rubber circular rubber gasket that goes around the diameter of the head tube after the top bearing goes in... Then the metal top plate sits above the bearing under the top triple clamp with the small o-ring on top of it.

If you look under the top triple, you'll see a small recessed ares where this mysterious small o-ring is supposed to seat.
