Oil leak after first startup???

Ok I got the motor in the truck after 7 months of saving for new parts. Thanks to all of you that have helped me along the way. After it started it ran for about 15 min. Then I took it down the road and back. When I got back I seen that I was leaking something. So I jumped up on the frontend to see the front of the motor covered. I checked the top of the motorand it was dry. So I got under the truck to look at it. Looks like it's coming from the front cover. Y would this be? Did I put it back together wormy or is the seal bad. What do you all think it could be? thanks

Josh.

You do not use rvt on the front crank seal. How did you install the seal ? What about the sleeve ? These have to be pressed fitted in, if you just banged it in, it won't hold.

Re: Oil leak after first startup???

Ok sorry for not answering your ? Man I was so pixxed I almost jumped in it and started looking for the biggest tree. But I took it all back apart. I feal like a dumd azz. But I forgot to put the metal ring on the seal and I was losing oil around it. It's all fixed now.:) this truck is so sweet to drive. I still don't have tunes for it yet. But it feals like it has more power with no tunes then it did stock with my sct with stock files. Thanks to all that replied to this. All of you have been so much help!

Re: Oil leak after first startup???

Haha I have a few good people I have to pay back first!
then I'll have some tunes put on it. When I got it runing Saturday night I had to take it out. Put about 150miles on it. Then yeterday on my way home I ran into a dmax that runs around with efi live with out a built trans. I had to give him a little. From about 55 up a hill I played with him for a min. Then I put it on him. Lol with tunes this ting should be sick can't wait.
