Jeep8719, it's not unusall to do the job twice or three times. If you're a novice at this job I'd expect this to be the norm. Did you loosen up the main bearing caps a little to let the crankshaft drop a little? This aids in removal an reinstall of the seals. Or did you keep the crankshaft in postion?

If you did not drop the crank a little, I'd advise it... it's much easier. You just have to have a torque wrench to tighten the caps back to spec. Then use enough gasket sealer on the oil pan to sink a battle ship in the rear main area. Let it setup a couple of hours before you refill with oil.
