Rear main sleeve

Post by cstaup » August 5th, 2013, 10:31 am

Before I split the pack and mic. the rear of the crank. Does anyone have the diameter of the rear crank?

I'm looking for a sleeve that didn't come along with the engine gasket kit (nor was I aware that there was one). I have this annoying leak, but it sure is real clean under there. Not leaking enough to cause problems, just annoying. Thanks.

Here's why I thought the rear main was leaking. I already have new gaskets coming. Thanks for the help, men.

I know that it's been a while, but I found out why my truck leaked. Not only was the pan gasket broke but the rear main seal spring was not in the groove where it s'posed to be.

I guess all the time that we removed that spring on my guys bit me in the ass. Now I can sell this one with a clear conscious.
