rear eng or frnt trans seal

Had to replace the clutch as I thought it was worn out. Got the tranny out and the bell housing is coated with about a 1/16"(give or take) sludge type residue. I know the rear engine or the front tranny seal is leaking but I don't know which.Should I just do both? How hard is it to replace the front tranny seal? The eng seal doesn't look too bad to replace. Do I need to use oem seals or would a good quality correct size seal do the trick? Any body know the sizes? Thanks

Re: rear eng or frnt trans seal

usually it's the main seal. You may find a wear groove in the crank. If it's significant, reposition the new seal in the housing so it hits new metal. Any engineering or bearing supplier should be able to get the seal, it's in all the reference books. Don't buy the OEM seal you'll only pay three times as much for probably the same seal. Since you have to drop the sump, make sure the front seal isn't leaking. if it is do that at the same time.

Now that you have the numbers, let us know how it works out?

Don't forget to check the O-ring on the dist. housing, make sure it too isn't leaking. .02 cents worth of Sillycone (RTV), could fix that so it never leaks again.

Re: rear eng or frnt trans seal

while you are there change rear seal drop the oil pan change
oil pan gasket and if you have not done it lately the front
crank seal cam seal and timing belt and of course the tranny
seal sound expensive? nope around $50 to 75. think of it as
insurance to keep you going and easy to do now. my 2 cents
