Re: Maniacal Mechanic
I'd suggest getting a hold of someone with Scouts West. You can link to them through another outstanding source Binderbulletin.org. Between those two groups you should have no problem finding a 'Scout friendly' mechanic. As for the work they say they need to do, it is fairly labor intensive. Specifically, the rear main engine seal requires either dropping the transmission or lifting the engine to replace it. The part is only about $15-20, but if it's bad, it'll need to be replaced. Your engine won't hold oil without it. Incidentally, I've heard there's a better quality rear main seal available through the 'Scout Light Line' vendors, who are also accessible via Binder Bulletin. If you need specific phone numbers, or can't find what I'm talking about let me know. Good luck!
