Is it possible to remove the rear main seal without seperating the engine from the tranny on an 81 bronco 302. I was told something about a sneeky pete but i dont know exactly what that is. Thanks for any help.
well in theory you could get it out then. The question now is weather you can drop the pan far enough to get to it. I'll probably be alot easier to pull the motor by the time you are done. It sucks. But it is what it is.
With mine, we had to take off the upper intake(EFI), unbilt the y-pipe to the manifolds and loosen the engine mounts. Then the motor jacked uo enough for the pan to clear the engine crossmember. Never had to take anythign loose with the transmission.
