Front Oil Seal

I am planning on replacing the front oil seal on my '87 Samurai. It leaks bad.... They tell me I can do it without pulling the engine. Anyone have any advice before I start. I bought the seal, is that all I need to do the job?

Re: Front Oil Seal

front oil seal? camshaft seal or cranks shaft seal? i would replace both of them will i was in there. you will have to remove timing cover and timing belt if you have alot of miles on your motor you might want to think on changing your timing belt too unlees money is an issue.

Re: Front Oil Seal

I just replaced the cam and crank seal on my Zuk. I replaced the timing belt while I was in there. The belt only cost $12, so why not.

It's not that tough of a job to replace the seals. The hardest part is getting the timing belt gears off. The Haynes manual is actually not bad to for this project. Although, Haynes is wrong about setting up the timing marks when you re-install the belt.

If you have any questions e-mail me and I'll try to help.

Re: Front Oil Seal

Hmph, I think I've got the haines manaul and just did the lower crank seal with the timing belt also.. The lower one was leaking kinna bad. I think the rear one is also. I'm running synthetic with 105 on the clock.. The distrib also leaks (I dunno where to get those 2 seals!?). The rear one seems to be leaking too, I dunno.. When under the zook, I can see oil beads on the transmission. I hope it is just oil from the distributor. Is it anoying to replace the rear crank seal? I pulled the radiator when I did my timing belt and lower crank seal. It was real easy, but took me about 4 hours. The timing belt must have flown away so I called a friend to take a trip down to the local discount.. The belt had jumped 1 tooth.. Runs great now but it smokes real bad if she sits for a while idling and is reved after that. I'm thinking valves.. Time to use the compression tester..

got zook?
