In order to replace the rear main you will have to remove the transmission in order to gain access to the seal, I can send replacement instructions if you need,

So this is not the one where I will need to drop the oil pan? The seal is one piece and not two?
Yes that is correct, the seal is a one piece design
One more question, drop the tranny, and its against the engine block right there?
Yes, on the back side of the engine, behind the flywheel
ok, thanks. I just dropped the oil pan and replaced the gaskets and it started leaking more. I thought it was the oil pan gasket which it was as far as I could tell. Now that its back together it started leaking really bad. I wasn't sure if it was worth the efford of dropping the tranny. But that seems simple enought. I was finding info about dropping oil pan and back of crankshaft because of two pieces etc. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX accept now.
Thank you very much!
