Hey guys,

It's been a while and I was wondering if I could get some info on installing a rear main seal on a Cleveland. It's been leaking bad for a while and I forget how to install one if I could get some info on the installation.

Well this could be difficult. Do you know if the locating pin has been removed if not that is probably what caused the leak. If the pin has been removed then drop pan loosen mains and remove rear main pull the crank down a litte bit and carefully tap out the upper half seal then replace both pieces offset the ends of the seals and put a dab of ultra grey on the ends. Then retorque in proper sequence.
