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?
