How difficult is it to replace the rear main seal. I had the HPOP O-Rings blow last week and sparyed oil everywhere. I replaced those and cleaned everything as good as possible. I am still having a oil drip at the bottom of the flywheel housing and think I might have a rear main leak, unless it is still dripping from the HPOP mishap.
thanks

before you go thinking its the rear main seal check everything up top and make sure nothing up there is leaking.
:whs:

Give it some time to all drain down from up top. Probably leftovers from your leak up top. I have yet to see a rear main actually leaking. Always ends up being up top draining down.

Probably just left over from the HPOP incident. The rear main seal almost never fail on these engines.

thanks for the tips, I will just keep wiping it down and hopefully it will stop soon. i have cleaned the top of the motor as good as possible but there still must be some oil up there.
Thanks again as always

Soak the valley with brake clean, follow with soaking with simple green. Follow with soaking from a garden hose (low pressure only, do not use a sprayer). See if that fixes you up.
