Front Main Seal

It looks like the front main seal in my 1600 is starting to leak a little. The factory manual shows that I need to remove the oil pump to replace the seal. Is that actually the case? Also, it shows a special part, a plastic guide that slides over the crank, to protect the seal from being damaged during installation. Do I really need that and if so, is it on the aftermarket?

Finally, it appears that the camshaft seal, and the front main are the same type seal. Is this the case? One last question, are these two seals are shared between 1300/1600 engines?

Re: Front Main Seal

jonathan-the oil pump is behind the housing the oil seal is
in to replace the seal just pull old one and tap in new one
use a non-metal screwdriver like for electronics or any
other small one with tape on tip just don't scratch crank
i use a 3/4 drive socket to tap new seal in place i always
change crank & cam seals at the same time also new timing
belt what the heck your there already. 1300 & 1600 seals
look the same but i never compared #'s if it does not have
to say suzuki on it autozone stocks seals and belts and
prices are good also napa usualy has in stock and if they
give you a discount also good prices. my 2 cents oldzuki

Re: Front Main Seal

jon the seal is'nt even too bad at a G.M. dealer the tracker seal is the same. if this is your first time changing the seal just be extra careful of the tensioner on the timing belt you must get it back together the way it came out and make sure it moves freely with the belt .

were not here for a long time were here for a good time
