    Upon doing my clutch swap on my 94 gt, I discovered that my rear crank shaft seal is leaking. Has anyone ever changed this, what does it all involve? It is leaking right where the flywheel bolts up. I wouldn't think that you would have to tear apart the bottom of the engine, but who knows. ???

    yes, i mean the rear main seal. It looks like it would just pop out. I'm also wondering how much of a pain in the a$$ it would be to take off the engine oil pan. anybody tried this lately?

    To take out the pan my mechanic had to lift my motor a few inches, it could of been done without but its a pita. You ask why he pulled it? He broke the end of my dipstick off in there lol.
