Leaking rear crank seal 200 c.i. 6cyl.

Hello,
Is is possible to replace the rear seal without removing the engine or trans?
and
is there a special seal installation tool needed?

thanks in advance for your replies.

Hello. You don't have to pull the motor or transmission out, but you do have to remove the oil pan. You don't need any special tools. You will want to to take the idler arm loose so that you can drop the steering stuff down far enough for the oil pan to clear the crank shaft. While you are there you probably ought to go ahead and replace the oil pan gasket. The rear seal is part of the oil pan set anyway. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the fast response Veronica,
Great! no engine/trans removal!
Can you describe or direct me to an image of that seal?

Hi again. If you can hang on for a minute I'll go take some pictures. I've got a couple of new oil pan gasket sets hanging around somewhere, along with a readily available engine block and oil pan. Back in a minute.

Hi again. Here's a picture of the seal. how the seal sits on the oil pan and where the other one on the block is. The one that you replace matches up with the one on the block. Hope that helps.
