Front and Rear Main Seal

4 posts in this topic

Should I get the kit to resleve or just new seals? Also any videos on the subject?

If you can see a wear mark on the crank use the sleeve kits,if not just a seal.Big thing is to make sure the crank is clean and DRY,no oil should be applied to the crank prior to new seal being installed.Last one i had to buy(rear seal) was $80 from frieghtliner.It should come packaged over a plastic installer,so all you do is slide if off the installer onto the crank.:2cents: Did you end up getting a used engine that your rebuilding?

Personally I always get the sleaved seals even if there is not a wear groove worn into the seal surface of the crank a sleave will prevent it from happening.:2cents: Just peace of mind knowing that the crank surface will stay in good condition.
