suby rear main seal


Hey for those who know these sorts of things...is the rear main seal replacement just a case of prying the old one out and tapping a new one in?
thanks

found it....

1. Remove engine or transmission

2. Use 1 to 3 drywall screws and drive them into seal with a drill about 1/2" or so

3. Using a prybar (could probably use a claw hammer as well), pry up on the screws. Sometimes the whole seal will pop out with 1 screw, if not, pry on all screws a bit at a time.

4. Clean crank surface and inside of sealed area with a shop towel

5. Fill inner groove of new rear main seal with a lithium grease / assembly lube

6. Hold seal against crank and keep it aligned with your hand while driving it in with a plastic-tip hammer. As soon as it starts to go on a bit, tap the opposite sides in a criss-cross pattern to keep it going on evenly. Drive the seal to where it is even with the block surface.

good stuff Rob. Did you change out the plastic plate behind the flywheel at the same time or is your motor a later one with the pressed metal plate??
