Oil leak

I am sure getting discouraged . I was sure I almost had this car on the road . Now I find the rear main seal is leaking again. Looks like another tear down and rebuild again. I will check again tomorrow and make sure but I cant even think of checking it tonite. Might decide to sell it cheap if this keeps up. Still havent even got it started.
Oh well thems the breaks.

Re: Oil leak

Ken- Any progress on that oil leak? The problem is that the bolts along the side of the pan cannot help with where you want to cinch the pan down along the front and back. Use a new soft cork gasket and whatever gasket sealant you prefer. Ross

Re: Oil leak

I figure to use some sort of sealant -Havent yet decided what but will get something. Gaskets all look good and they are all fairly new and still guite soft so should be okay. Going to put it back together tomorrow. Then if the little beast will start I will find out.
Thanks for the suggestion .
